Spare a Moment to Help Chef’s wife Claire Galmiche

Everyone at The Chefs’ Forum is thinking and praying for Claire Galmiche, the wife of much-loved French chef Daniel Galmiche, as she battles stage four cancer. According to her Go Fund Me page Claire is suffering from unimaginable pain that can only be dampened by a cocktail of very strong drugs.

She is currently in a private hospital, The Wellington, and is hoping to raise enough money to pay for treatment that she cannot get on the NHS. Her desire is to try to get back home where she can start to recover. But none of this is certain and Daniel Galmiche has had to put his work on hold to care for his beloved wife.

All of us who work in hospitality, whether it be in the kitchen or front of house, know what a passionate, kind and considerate group of people we are. And, as a consequence, we also know when it is time to take pause and offer our help.

In this case we urge you to take a moment to visit the page on Go Fund Me and read the extraordinary words of a woman who has reached a point where the pain is too much to bear. However, you will read what the help of those around her – some she knows, some she doesn’t – has meant.

The generosity of the hospitality industry has been immense and it has ensured that she is getting the right treatment. But the battle is only half won.

We thank you in earnest for your support, no matter how small.
