14 novice chefs will battle it out this November in Kitchen Inferno with Shaun Rankin at the Highlands Academy Restaurant, raising money for Jersey Cheshire Home. Will Brian McCarthy, MD of Le Masurier, be able to stand the heat?
Each team has created their own menu, 50 guests have chosen which one they want, it’s now up to each team to deliver… under the direction of Michelin Star Chef Shaun Rankin. Guests will watch the LIVE action from the Kitchen Inferno on the night and enjoy video of the highs, lows, tears and tantrums of the day.
Money raised from Shaun Rankin’s Kitchen Inferno will go towards Le Masurier Managing Director Brian McCarthy’s Sponsorship.
Shaun Rankin, Chef Proprietor, Ormer Restaurant: “Kitchen Inferno is going to be a challenging, exciting and unpredictable event! I am going to be working all the contestants hard so that they deliver to the diners on the night; if their dishes are not up to scratch they will not be making it over the Pass. It really is no mean feat cooking three courses for a dining room of people, especially as novices. I expect highs and lows from all team members and I believe it will be teamwork that will eventually bring them through it. I am very proud to be involved in this special event for Jersey Cheshire Home and look forward to meeting all the diners and helping to raise valuable funds on the night.”
On November 8th, 30 of the Island’s Business Leaders are taking part in a 5-day Trek in Kerala in India to raise money for the Jersey Cheshire Home. The Home, for severely disabled adults, costs £5000 per day to run so it relies heavily on local fundraising, as it is only part funded by the States of Jersey. Last time the trek in Iceland raised £80,000.
Brian McCarthy, Managing Director, Le Masurier: “This very exciting event is the highlight of a year of fundraising on behalf of the Jersey Cheshire Home and I would like to thank everyone who has contributed so much. The trek is now imminent and we will all face both personal and physical challenges. However, these pale into insignificance when compared to those individuals who are physically disabled and, without the support of the Home, are unable to enjoy the same quality of life we take for granted”.
