Can eat, will eat

Tulkinghorn has just heard of the most marvellous wheeze: eat your fill and support a children's charity at the same time. The Variety Club of Great Britain is holding a celebrity chef gastronomic evening on Tuesday 16 April for lawyers and their clients. Normally, Tulkinghorn is happy with Mrs Tulkinghorn's pork chops, but he feels tempted by an event that has different courses supplied by a whole galaxy of stars: Michel Roux of Le Gavroche, Antonio Carluccio of Carluccios, Henry Brosi of the Dorchester and John Torode of Smiths of Smithfield – plus Daniel Clifford of Midsummer House in Cambridge, who has just been awarded his first Michelin star.
