Alain Ducasse and Jason Atherton partner in aid of Hospitality Action
On Wednesday 22 April 2020, gastronomic visionary Alain Ducasse and global restaurateur Jason Atherton will co-host an exclusive dinner at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, aiming to show their continued support of the 183-year-old charity, Hospitality Action.
For one night only, guests will enjoy a five-course menu devised by the chefs which will include celebratory dishes such as Atherton’s Turbot, morels, asparagus, chicken, black truffle, vin jaune jus and Ducasse’s Scottish langoustines, pistachio and citrus. In the kitchen, Jean-Philippe Blondet, acclaimed Executive Chef at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, will be joined by rising star Daniel Birk, Executive Chef at The Social Company, to bring the best of Ducasse and Atherton’s menus to the newly refurbished surroundings of one of London’s finest dining destinations.
Proceeds from the one-off dinner service will be donated towards Hospitality Action, the charity of which Jason Atherton proudly calls himself Principal Patron and Alain Ducasse has worked with extensively including at cult event, Obsession 18. Money raised on the night will go towards continuing the charity’s tireless efforts to highlight the importance of financial, physical and psychological support within the hospitality sector, whilst offering guests an extra special gastronomic experience.
“Hosting this event with Alain, a chef who I have always looked up to and followed, is incredibly special. To be supporting a charity I feel so passionately about is an honour, especially to do so at an institution like Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester. I hope other chefs and restaurateurs see someone like the legendary Ducasse backing Hospitality Action as encouragement for them in turn to champion outstanding conditions for our chefs, waiters, and hospitality professionals. We can’t wait to raise a toast with you to celebrate all they do”, Atherton says.
Alain Ducasse comments: ‘It is a great pleasure to join forces with Jason Atherton, who I have long admired, for a very special evening. I am especially looking forward to honouring the incredible work by Hospitality Action and the essential awareness they bring to support the hardworking and dedicated hospitality teams’.
The evening will begin at 7pm with a Champagne and canapé reception in the presence of Alain Ducasse and Jason Atherton.
