Ascentia Foodservice Equipment will be donating a Mibrasa Hibachi grill that will go up for auction to help raise money for a charity event which will feature 10 MasterChef stars.

Chefs who appeared on MasterChef: The Professionals will be coming together for the first time, creating 10 dishes between them to raise money for Dementia UK.

Adam Handling, who was a finalist himself on MasterChef: The Professionals in 2013, will be hosting the charity dinner at his restaurant, The Frog, in Shoreditch and will be cooking one of the dishes.

The event has been organised by 2015 finalist Andi Walker as a tribute to his grandmother, Nanny Pickles, who suffers from dementia. Walker cites his grandmother as the person who inspired him to become a chef from a young age.

The chefs taking part alongside Adam and Andi will be 2015 contestants: Mark Stinchcombe, Nick Bennett, Darren Sivewright, Scott Barnard, Danilo Cortellini, Bobby Retnakumar, Joey O’Hare, Dean Westcar and Gavin Barnes.

Tickets for the charity dinner, on 14 November, cost £100 and include a five-course tasting menu, drink on arrival, snacks and “a hell of a lot of fun”, according to organisers.

The Hibachi Grill, made by Mibrasa is a small countertop charcoal grill that is currently used by two Michelin Star chef James Close of the Raby Hunt.
