That's saying a lot considering Peter currently runs establishments in New Zealand, Istanbul and London, and has a career spanning over 20 years. Tonight will mark the 15th Annual ‘Who’s Cooking Dinner’ and will see 20 chefs create 20 menus, 80 plates and 80 matching wines, all in the small confines of the Four Seasons Hotel kitchen.
This was one of the first events to create an element of surprise around the meal itself. Each chef will pull a name out of a hat to decide who they’re cooking for on the night, then it’s on for young and old as one of the busiest and most frantic services in London kicks off!
Luck of the draw dictates who will be eating bespoke menus from Phil Howard, Marcus Wareing, Tong Chee Hwee, Bruce Poole, Peter Gordon, Clare Smyth, Nuno Mendes, Brett Graham, The Galvin Brothers, Francesco Mazzei, or any of the world class culinary giants that will grace the room tonight!
The aim is to raise funds for Leuka who are leaders in leukaemia and blood cancer research. This disease has touched both Peter, a donor for his sister, and Chris, who was diagnosed with the illness himself. Both patients in question survived to fight another day, but unfortunately there are still many who suffer from the disease.
Hopefully, we are not too far from finding a cure. That is the feeling amongst all the guests, chefs and volunteers that have come together tonight to move a step closer to reaching this goal.
