Never too many cooks

Never too many cooks

In April, 45 top chefs from Relais & Chateaux restaurants in 12 different countries shall come together to cook for guests at the charity event Diner des Grands Chefs. With a number of Michelin-stars between them, it’s very unlikely that any broth, consomme, or soup, for that matter, shall be spoiled.

From the UK alone, there’s Raymond Blanc, whose Le Manoir aux Quat’ Saisons in Oxfordshire holds two stars; Andrew Fairlie, of Gleneagles’ two-starred Restaurant Andrew Fairlie, in Perthshire; and Claude Bosi of London’s two-starred Hibiscus.

The chefs, in teams of three, have been tasked with creating a five-course menu inspired by the British Isles which they will prepare and cook in front of guests at Old Billingsgate Market, once the world’s largest fish market.

‘To work alongside some of the world’s greatest chefs while raising money for a genuinely worthy cause will be an honour,’ says Claude Bosi. ‘I’m also really looking forward to cooking live and interacting with the guests.’

Diner des Grands Chefs takes place 22 April 2013 at Old Billingsgate Market, 16 Lower Thames Street, London. Tickets cost ?650; proceeds go to Action Against Hunger ( To book, visit
