Raymond Blanc to cook at Sofitel's Michelin Star Gourmet Event in London
21st March 2013
Sofitel Luxury Hotels is delighted to announce that its next Stars, Food & Art charity event will take place at The Balcon at Sofitel London St James on Thursday 21 March 2013.
Stars, Food & Art combines art with gastronomic excellence and the London event sees four talented chefs participating: Raymond Blanc, Christophe Muller, Michael Moore and Guy Krenzer. Each chef will prepare one dish in this four-course fine-dining charity event which begins with a Champagne reception. Strategically placed screens in the restaurant will broadcast live video from a webcam in the kitchen, offering a behind the scenes view. Chefs will also meet with diners in the course of the evening. While special dietary requirements will be catered for, menus will only be revealed on the evening itself.
The event is being held in aid of The Royal Flying Doctor Service of Australia – Friends in the UK. The Royal Flying Doctor Service offers primary health care and 24-hour emergency service to those who live, work and travel throughout Australia, especially those in remote and rural communities. The Friends in the UK work to raise funds for aircraft replacement.
Inspired by Sofitel’s ‘Art de Vivre’ concept, Stars, Food & Art was first created in 2007 at Sofitel Legend Amsterdam The Grand, seeking to offer a memorable experience of fine dining, wine and culture. Following its success, and in collaboration with culinary author and journalist Lise Timmer, the culinary event now takes place on a quarterly basis at different Sofitel addresses across the globe.
Sofitel London St James is a five star, grade II listed property located on the corner of Pall Mall and Waterloo Place. The Balcon opened in 2011 as a grand brasserie combining the best of French and British cuisine with a dedicated charcuterie bar, champagne balcony and private dining room.
