Phillip Howard, Angela Harnett MBE and Mark Kempson are joining forces in the kitchen to cook up a Christmas treat to raise funds for Hospitality Action. The exclusive event will takeplace on Tuesday 27 November at Brasserie Joël, Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London. Phillip Howard, one of the UK’s most talented chefs and recent star of BBC 2’s Great British Menu, has created a spectacular menu, alongside Angela Hartnett MBE from Murano and Mark Kempson of The Square, to raise money for Hospitality Action. The trio – who have achieved four Michelin stars between them – will oversee the preparation of each dish, as well as hosting the exclusive event. Philip says: “At this time of year, it's easy to forget about the problems faced by those who work in hospitality. By attending this event, Hospitality Action can continue to make a vital difference and provide a crucial lifeline to those who need it most, whether they’re suffering from illness, addiction, poverty, bereavement or domestic violence."  Penny Moore, chief executive, Hospitality Action, comments: “We’re thrilled to have the support of Phil, Angela and Mark this Christmas. Hospitality employees will be stretched over the coming months as they work harder and longer hours to ensure their guests enjoy the festive season. The funds raised at this event will help make the season a little more bearable for those in crisis within our industry.” The dinner would be the perfect outing for a Christmas party, as well as a chance to show your support for those in the hospitality industry. Tickets for the event are selling out fast, so book early to avoid disappointment. Tickets are priced at £95 per person or £900 for a table of ten.
