Celebrated chefs Raymond Blanc OBE and Bruno Loubet joined forces to help raise important funds for industry charity, Hospitality Action by hosting an exclusive dinner at Bistrot Bruno Loubet.
The one-off, sell-out event saw charity patron and star of BBC2’s Kitchen Secrets, Raymond reunite with his protégée Bruno to serve an impressive four-course dinner of spring vegetable salad, air-dried duck, parmesan mousse and banyulus jelly.
Before dinner guests were given an exclusive preview of The Zetter Townhouse, due to open in April, where they enjoyed a private drinks reception.
Raymond said: “Hospitality Action is an amazing charity that I am proud to support. It is fantastic to work with Bruno again for such a vital cause.”
Bruno said: “It is always good to support our industry and give something back. I would like to encourage others to do the same and make a difference so we can help even more of those in real need.”
The event raised £17,000 and will go towards assisting those that have worked, or are working in our industry that and are facing difficult times through illness, poverty, bereavement or addiction.
