Michelin-starred chef Russell Brown raises £2,000 for Hospitality Action
Dorset's only Michelin starred chef, Russell Brown, has raised more than £2,000 for Hospitality Action, while celebrating the 10th anniversary of his Dorchester restaurant.
Brown, who runs Sienna Restaurant in High West Street, held a 10-day event where he cooked a 10-course menu. Each ticket included a £10 donation to the charity Hospitality Action.
"A 10-course tasting menu for a full house for 10 days was a massive challenge but hugely rewarding. Our staff all did a brilliant job and definitely went the extra mile. It was a perfect opportunity to showcase what we do at Sienna and I would like to say a big thank you to all the customers and sponsors for their support," said Brown.
"I would particularly like to thank Bollinger UK and Villeroy and Boch for their sponsorship and guest chef Brett Sutton from the Eastbury hotel in Sherborne who cooked with us on two nights," he added.
The event raised more than £2,000 for Hospitality Action, the industry benevolent charity, which provides much needed support to hospitality workers experiencing difficult times."
Penny Moore, chief executive of Hospitality Action said: "Many congratulations to Sienna on their 10 year anniversary. I am delighted that Russell and Elena have been able to support Hospitality Action during this happy time. So far this year the charity has processed 35% more applications for help than at the same point in 2012 so the money raised during these celebrations really will make all the difference."
Event sponsors included Blackacre Farm Eggs, Westwood House Guest House, Richard Budd Photography, Bollinger Champagne, Dorset Wines, Oliver Harvey chefswear, Hildon and Villeroy & Boch.
