Category : Main, News

Seven top chefs, a seven-course menu – and seven grand raised for charity.

Cambridge’s award-winning restaurant Alimentum staged and evening of fun and gastronomic flair in aid of Tommy’s the charity that supports research into miscarriages and premature births.

Chef patron Mark Poynton rallied a team of seven culinary wizards to create a seven-course menu, which 50 ticket holders were then able to sample. His cooking crew were Daniel Clifford (Midsummer House), Will Holland (La Becasse), Ben Spalding (Roganic), Matt Gillan (The Pass), and Russell Bateman (Colettes at The Grove) and Paul Foster (Tuddenham Mill)

As well as the food, there was an auction of promises, and in all, £7,000 was raised. The treats included beetroot and foie gras macaroons, Violina pumpkin and raspberry and fennel salad. Mark said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have raised such a fantastic sum of money. Everyone worked really hard and were incredibly generous with their time and guests with their money.”
