Fight against hunger - CHROMA SUPPER CLUB

A 14-course gourmet dinner with matching wines that lasted till two in the morning was an epic launch for the Chroma Knives Charity Supper Club.
In what is hope to become a quarterly fund-raising fixture, Action Against Hunger benefited from this gathering of foodie movers and shakers from Manchester and London at the home of Chroma Knives UK importer Franco Sotgiu.
Star attraction was glamorous TV cook Gizzi Erskine, of Cook Yourself Thin fame, accompanied by Irish food lover Niamh Shields, who The Times named as one of the world’s 10 best bloggers for her
Cooking for them on this sumptuous occasion were ex-Fat Duck husband and wife duo Laurence Tottingham and Mary-Ellen McTague, who brought their serving team from Aumbry in Prestwich, current MFDF Restaurant of the Year.

Among the impressed punters was a man no stranger to culinary innovation, Aiden Byrne, the youngest chef ever to win a Michelin star.
Franco's own foodie credentials were emphasised by the presence on the menu of pork from his own pigs. Supper club guest were introduced to the current batch at the bottom of his garden!
In-demand Gizzi, with several new TV projects on the go including one mooted as Masterchef meet The Apprentice, was rushing back from her brush with the Aumbry Scotch egg to judge – what else – a Scotch egg contest with 44 competitors.
