Generous helpings

Tulkinghorn very much enjoyed stuffing his face at the Variety Club’s legal gastronomic evening at the Dorchester last week. Judging by the way lawyers were staggering out of the hotel that evening, the celebrity chefs lived up to their billing.

Oh, the food! Oh, the fine wines! Peter Gordon of The Providores, Aldo Zilli of the Zilli Group, Karim Haidar of The Fakhreldine, Henri Brosi in his home kitchen at the Dorchester, Vineet Bhatia of Zaika and Ed Baines of Randall and Aubin did the evening proud.

Best of all was the auction, which raised £18,000 for disabled and underprivileged children – the total tally came to £55,000.
