Culinary connoisseurs won’t want to miss out when ten professional chefs host a five course charity dinner in the East End.

All of the chefs have appeared on the television series MasterChef: The Professionals and have come together to host the charity dinner for Dementia UK.

The charity dinner will be hosted at the Frog Restaurant E1, inside the Old Truman Brewery in Hanbury Street, Spitalfields, which is run by 2013 finalist Adam Handling.

The dinner evening will consist of two five course meals for guests to choose from with each chef cooking one dish each.

Adam said that he and the other chefs will ‘cook up a storm’ to help raise funds for the charity.

“As those who have a loved one with dementia will know, it’s a horrible illness for anyone to have – let alone your hero,” said Adam.

“We’re all going to cook up a storm to raise money for this amazing charity on the evening and remember those who have inspired and cheered us on, I can’t wait.”

Tickets cost £100 for the event, which takes place on Monday November 14, and can be purchased at
