On Monday 28th November 2022, our 7th annual Great Chef's Dinner returned to the dazzling Roux at Landau restaurant, at The Langham, London.

Our host, Michel Roux Jr was joined by five stellar chefs and Roux Scholars including Chef Chris King, Kenneth Culhane, Andre Garrett, Spencer Metzger and Steve Drake.

Michel Roux Jr, Chef Patron of Le Gavroche, and the man behind the Langham’s culinary offering, said:

I am always so proud to host this fantastic fundraising event for DEBRA. It is such a wonderful charity and one that The Langham, London and I, are thrilled to continue to support.

We have some exceptional chefs again, cooking for the seventh DEBRA Great Chefs Dinner and I know it will be a fantastic night raising money to fight EB.

Guests enjoyed a Champagne Reception sponsored by Dumangin Fils before being seated at their tables for the evening. 

Each of the chefs prepared a finely-tuned course…
