International Restaurateurs Dinner Raises £22,000 for Hospitality Industry Charities

The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, World Young Chef Young Waiter and The Wine Guild UK put on a standout dinner to raise valuable funds for hospitality training on the 29th April at The Rosewood Hotel in London.

The evening was a showcase of chef and front of house talent with chefs Jose Pizarro, Ian Musgrave, Hrishikesh Desai and Cherish Finden putting on the four course dinner.

The evening raised £22,000 for charity and was an industry showcase of talent in the kitchen and front of house. The guests were treated to an update on World Young Chef Young Waiter by head judge Adam Handling who explained the competition is going from strength to strength with the addition of young mixologist being added.

Young Chef Young Waiter commented on the evening: “With the wonderful generosity and support from all our friends in the industry, we have raised well in excess of £1.5million over the years.

“These vital funds have been invested in education and training initiatives developed by the partner organisations. The dinner, however, is not just a fundraising event, it is also an opportunity for people with common interests to meet and enjoy a wonderful evening of fun and entertainment.”
