DEBRA’s 2018 Great Chefs Dinner raised £85,000 for its #FightEB appeal this month (6 February), as six chefs gave up their time for free to host a six-course dinner at The Langham (London).

Raising funds to “make a real difference to the quality of life for people suffering from the skin blistering condition, Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB),” the event saw chefs Michel Roux Jr, Chris King, Chris Galvin, Jacob Kenedy, Hywel Jones and Andrew Gravett each cook one course.

Galvin said: “(EB sufferer) James Dunn and DEBRA are doing amazing work raising awareness of EB. It was an inspiring experience meeting James and I’m happy to be part of such a worthy campaign.

As well as enjoying dishes such as an escabeche of yellow fin tuna, saffron braised Pyrenean milk-fed lamb and guanaja chocolate and peanut bar, guests were treated to specially-paired wines throughout, supplied free of charge by wine producer, Chapel Down.

To raise additional funds to help more EB sufferers, DEBRA is hosting its 40th Anniversary Celebrity Chefs Dinner on 8 June, with a number of chefs, including Michelin star holders Giorgio Locatelli and Jeff Galvin (Chris Galvin’s brother), already signed up.

Chris Galvin added: “If you want to support the #FightEB campaign then do attend the 40th Anniversary Celebrity Chefs Dinner on the 8 June, where my brother Jeff Galvin will be cooking.”
