Michel Roux Jr will attend a cooking competition and fundraising dinner at Livelyhood’s The Treehouse in Clapham (above The Clapham North pub), in support of young people from south London at risk of social exclusion and youth violence.
Held this Thursday 16 May, the cook-off and dinner is organised by youth charity BIGKID Foundation in partnership with Livelyhood, and will see young people work alongside the pub group’s executive chef Nick Carter to prepare a three-course meal for diners to judge based on taste and presentation.
The competitors will receive culinary advice from Carter and Roux Jr.
Money raised from each £35 ticket will go to the charity. There will also be a raffle and auction.
“I am delighted to be joining the BIGKID Foundation’s wonderful event for a second year in a row,” says Roux Jr. “It’s always great fun, and most importantly, raises money for an incredibly worthy cause. As a south Londoner myself, I think it’s so important to help our local young people to achieve their fullest potential, and the work that BIGKID Foundation does is instrumental.”
