A collection of Cornwall’s hero chefs will join forces on October 13 to host an exclusive charity dinner at The Alverton in Truro
Guy Owen of St Enodoc Hotel, Jude Kereama of Kota and Stephane Delourme of The Rick Stein Group will join The Alverton‘s exec chef Nick Hodges to prepare a charity supper in aid of The Fishermen’s Mission this October. The five-course culinary celebration of Cornwall’s coast and countryside will feature the very best seafood, grass-fed meats and harvest highlights from across the Duchy.
The dinner, which will be served in the historic Great Hall of the Grade-II listed luxury hotel, forms the centrepiece of the evening’s entertainment. The entire event will pay homage to the coast and its communities, from the complimentary Salcombe Gin and tonic on arrival and the sounds of a traditional Cornish Sea Shanty group through to a talk on the local fishing industry hosted by BBC Radio Cornwall’s Daphne Skinnard and a charity auction crammed with generous gifts.
The worthy beneficiary of the event, The Fishermen’s Mission, has supported the men and women of the UK’s fishing communities (and their families) since 1881. The charity provides round-the-clock emergency help alongside its practical and emotional welfare support and safety campaigns.
Speaking about the event, The Fishermen’s Mission fundraising manager for Cornwall and Devon, Julian Waring, said: ‘We’re really looking forward to the celebration of Cornish produce in what is an incredible venue. On behalf of the charity, I’m looking forward to meeting everyone and raising vital donations to support fishing families in need.’
