Social Sunday returns to The Social Company in aid of Hospitality Action

The  Staff Canteen
‘Social Sunday’ will be returning to Jason Atherton’s The Social Company, on Sunday 5th June 2016. Chef Director Jason AthertonAll proceeds raised will be going directly to Hospitality Action, which offers vital assistance to all who work, or have worked within hospitality in the UK and who find themselves in crisis. With all staff working for free on the day, and suppliers donating their produce, Social Sunday is a celebration of the generosity and collaborative spirit of the hospitality industry as well as the creativity of some of the country’s most talented chefs. The Michelin-starred restaurateur and the head chefs at all seven of their London-based restaurants will host a series of collaborative lunches, welcoming fellow top chefs from the UK’s dining scene to cook a bespoke menu in aid of Hospitality Action. Joining Jason Atherton at his flagship restaurant, Pollen Street Social, will be Tom Kerridge, Sat Bains and Claude Bosi, for an all-Michelin-star line-up. Across the street at Little Social, Greg Marchand from recently opened critic’s favourite, Frenchie, will be creating a menu inspired by produce collected on a market road trip to France with Chef Patron, Cary Docherty.
