The Five Michelin-starred Chefs of Kent raise 16,000 for charity Chapter One Restaurant


Andy McLeish (Chapter One), Stephen Harris (The Sportsman), Graham Garrett (The West House), Daniel Hatton (Thackeray's) and Tim Johnson (Apicius) raised a total of £16,000 for charity on Monday 17th March when they joined forces at Chapter One.

The 'Night of the Kent Chefs', which sold out was in aid of the Nicholls Spinal Injury Foundation, a charity for people living with paralysis caused by spinal cord injury.

The chefs prepared a sensational seven-course menu, which started with Stephen Harris' Amuse Bouche of Poached Whitstable Rock Oyster. Daniel Hatton was in charge of the starter, Roast Saddle of Kentish Wild Rabbit. Graham Garrett oversaw the fish course of Warm Escabeche of local Wild Seabass. For the main, Andy McLeish cooked a Roast Saddle of Chart Farm Sika Venison and Tim Johnson prepared the finale of Warm Breach Farm Bramley Apple Charlotte.

Andy McLeish, Chef Patron at Chapter One says: "The event was a huge success. It was a great experience working with such esteemed chefs in my kitchen. We had a lot fun and the food was outstanding, but most importantly we raised a large amount for a worthy charity. We have all spoken about doing it again next year... so watch this space."
