Celebrated US Chef Richard Myers, former Executive Chef at the 5* Le Pavillon Hotel in New Orleans, is about to embark on a very unusual challenge to help two very worthwhile charities – Action Against Hunger (Charity number 1047501) and the Royal Hospital for Neuro- Disablity in Putney (Charity number (205907).
Richard plans to kick off his journey from Southend-on-Sea pier at 10am on the 12th July, via London, to Brighton (and perhaps beyond) cooking up a storm along the way. He comes with spare clean socks, a positive attitude, a glint in his eye and a passion for good, tasty food.
He will stop at any restaurant, party, fair, event, or social gathering to whip up a feast, in return for donations to these two very worthwhile causes. All he needs is some fresh ingredients, a place to cook, and your event will be catered for! No gathering is too small – a garden party for five or a corporate affair for 100!
To book Richard as your private chef, in Southend, or surrounding areas towards London, on the 11th or 12th July, just call him on 07585 706 910, tweet him @laissezchef or email firstname.lastname@example.org and he will book you in! He will also be looking for a place to lay his head each night, so if you have a spare bed, or could provide for, or arrange a local B&B, it would be much appreciated!
You can support Richard on his challenge by donating here, or you can text your donation to chef97 £5 for AAH or chef98 £5 RNH at 70070 – He’ll keep walking as long as people keep supporting him, and will leave a trail of New Orleans spice along the way!
