Sean Valentine FIH Managing Director – World Young Chef Young Waiter

We’re delighted to be hosting the first ever International Restaurateurs’ Dinner in the company of such wonderful and passionate patrons of hospitality. It feels significant to launch this event in 2022, a year that sees us coming out of a global pandemic. We’re now taking stock of the true scale of the impact that Covid-19 had not only on the world around us, but on this industry that we all love. Tonight’s event isn’t just about rubbing shoulders with the industry’s best, or even the spectacular menu and wines that we’ll be enjoying. At the heart of it, we’re all here to raise money in aid of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, World Young Chef Young Waiter and The Wine Guild of the United Kingdom, all of which are investing in the future of this industry through training initiatives. Speaking as Managing Director of World Young Chef Young Waiter, I have seen firsthand how this competition can make a huge difference to the lives of the young professionals in this industry; we invite chefs from any background to join us on the global stage as a competitor, being judged by some of the industry’s most recognisable names. It has been a once in a lifetime opportunity for these young chefs and

waiters to demonstrate their passion and skills and our finalists have gone on to become movers and shakers in hospitality. I’m very proud of my role in this competition and it’s been a joy to see these young people flourish. We’ve recently launched our 2022 competition, which will be focused on the UK and beyond, taking Young Chef Young Waiter to a global audience in November 2022. I’m excited to see what incredible talent we will discover. Be sure to keep your eyes open for our finalists going on to do great things. Thank you to the incredible team who have put together tonight’s sensational, mouth-watering menu. You’re in for a real treat with dishes created by some of the UK’s leading chefs, all of whom are Royal Academy of Culinary Arts Academicians. Thank you also to Romain Bourger, UK Sommelier of the Year 2019 from The Vineyard Hotel at Stockcross, who has selected some spectacular wines to pair with each course. Finally, thank you to tonight’s sponsor, Champagne Laurent-Perrier, to the Rosewood Hotel for being such fantastic hosts and to everyone who has worked so fastidiously to make this event happen. We’re looking forward to raising a huge amount of money for hospitality while having a great meal and a lot of fun!


About the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts Adopt a School Trust Delivering food education to children hungry to learn


he Royal Academy of Culinary Arts Adopt a School Trust was founded in 1990 and teaches children – in a holistic way – about food: where it comes from; how to cook it; why we need it; and its impact on the environment. We aim to instil knowledge and understanding about health, nutrition, hygiene, cooking skills, and the environment, as well as the importance of cookery and eating together. We believe that every child should be taught about the significance of food and the impact it has in our lives. Adopt a School is delivered, on a voluntary basis, by members of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts. The sessions take place in the classroom and range in content from the four tastes and the five senses, to advanced practical cookery and a front of house session. The charity reaches over 16,000 children every year (that’s half a million children since it began) and we work mainly with primary schools, but also secondary schools, SEN schools, hospital schools, pupil referral units, sports centres and food festivals. As a charity, Adopt a School relies solely on its sponsors and fundraising to keep the momentum going. It costs around £300 for each Adopt a School session (£10 per child) delivered by one of our chef lecturers, so all fundraising efforts – however large or small – are crucial.

In September 2014, practical cookery and food education became compulsory in the national curriculum for pupils aged 5 – 14 years, and the Government’s Obesity Plan further reinforces the vital role schools have in supporting healthier eating and shaping healthy habits. Despite this, many children are still not receiving the food education and essential cookery skills that they so desperately need. Adopt a School’s hands-on approach to cooking and food education can and has changed lives, but we need your support to help raise much needed funds, so that we can reach more children across the country. The Trustees of the Adopt a School Trust wish the three organisations another very successful year and wish the supporters of the International Restaurateurs’ Dinner attending tonight a very enjoyable evening. To find out how you can help raise much needed funds for Adopt a School please contact: Helena Houghton Executive Director Adopt a School Trust 76 Vincent Square London SW1P 2PD Email:

House of Champagne Laurent-Perrier



Situated at the crossroads of the three main wine growing areas within the Marne département: the Montagne de Reims, the House of Champagne Laurent-Perrier has been continuously innovating since its origination in 1812. Internationally recognised as one of the foremost names in the region, its success can be attributed to the challenging of conventional techniques, honouring traditional values and its respect for nature and terroir above all. An unrivalled creator of style and emotion, Champagne Laurent-Perrier suits every occasion and offers a unique experience for all senses through its innovative and comprehensive range of eight champagnes. The de Nonancourt family took the reins of the House in 1939, boldly challenging the conventions of an industry where innovation was a hundred years behind it. First led by MarieLouise Lanson de Nonancourt, her son Bernard de Nonancourt took over following WW2, a time where the champagne industry was in decline and there had been no pioneering minds in a century. However, he had a modern vision of its potential and imagined a style that was cleaner on the palate and easier to drink, a style you could enjoy on its own at any time. The House has been built around 4 strong convictions. Champagne is based on the art of blending: the blending of grape varieties, the blending of Crus and the blending of years. Beyond rare vintages, Laurent-Perrier brings this art to a peak with Grand Siècle. Chardonnay is the basis of the Laurent-Perrier style. This variety which is very often the majority, brings Brut Sans Année from “La Cuvée” to the House’s champagnes with the most prestigious Cuvées bringing the freshness, the elegance and purity which are much sought after and make the

Laurent-Perrier style so distinct. An innovator in Champagne, Laurent-Perrier was the first House to offer the successive breakthrough Cuvées of Grand Siècle, Cuvée Rosé, Ultra Brut and Alexandra Rosé Millesimé. The de Nonancourt legacy is continued through the independence of this family-owned champagne house and its related values, taking the house from one of hundreds to its current position as one of the region’s leading. These same principles guide the current management team, who are led by a strong line of pioneering women fiercely committed to the craft of champagne and proudly overseen by Bernard’s two daughters, Stéphanie Meneux de Nonancourt and Alexandra Pereyre de Nonancourt. As growers and producers of fine Champagne wines, Laurent-Perrier is committed to ending all practices or actions which may cause irreversible damage to the environment. This pledge lives and breathes daily at the House, showing a continual respect for the environment and finite natural resources. The House’s long-term policy in grape growing and wine elaboration is based entirely on sustainable methods, through the careful management of resources such as water and energy, the balanced use of terroirs and soils and the reduction of waste at the source through recycling and recovery efforts. Laurent-Perrier is proud to be supporting the first ever International Restaurateurs’ Dinner, showcasing our champagnes’ affinity with fine food and providing the opportunity to invest in a future generation’s culinary skills. As the standardbearer of HRH The Prince of Wales Royal Warrant, it is real a privilege for Laurent-Perrier to play a small part in shaping the future of our next younger generation.

Patrons’ Hall of Fame

Many of you may fondly remember the National Restaurateurs’ Dinner, an annual fundraising event founded by Roy Ackerman CBE in 1988, who sadly passed away in May 2017. The International Restaurateurs’ Dinner is built on the foundations of the last 30 years and Roy Ackerman’s legacy but with the aim to spread the delight further than ever before. We would like to acknowledge the personal contribution many people made to get us to where we are today.

With thanks to their continued support we have raised over £1.5 million pounds which has been reinvested, via the various associations back into training and education for our beloved Hospitality Industry. Several leading lights of the industry are listed below as we recognise their huge support for the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, The Wine Guild of the United Kingdom and Young Chef Young Waiter.

In January 1999 the restaurant received its first Michelin star. In 2000, Claude left Overton Grange to open his own restaurant, named ‘Hibiscus’ after his favourite flower.
