The Atlantic Hotel's Mark Jordan returns home for charity
05 January 2015
The Atlantic Hotel's Executive Chef, Mark Jordan has been invited to join a stellar gathering of the UK's premier chefs for the second time, at the annual Chef's Night Out charity event taking place in Cardiff later this month.
Chef's Night Out brings together a number of the country's finest chefs to cook for 150 guests. Each chef creates a four course menu with matched wines, but it is only on the night that guests discover exactly who will be preparing their dinner.
Now in its sixth year, the 2015 Chef's Night Out will take place on Saturday 31st January at The Parc Thistle Hotel, Cardiff. The event is held in aid of Ty Hafan, one of the UK's leading paediatric palliative care charities and to date, through this initiative, more than £300,000 has been raised for this very worthy cause.
Offering care, comfort and support for life-limited children and young people and committed to improving quality of life for the whole family this is a charity close to Mark's heart as he originally hails from Wales himself. Of the chefs taking part, most are Welsh, have a Welsh connection, or are working in a restaurant in Wales.
Menus are styled exclusively for the night with dishes prepared from local produce and Mark will be creating a bespoke four course menu that will offer an insight into the dining experience at Jersey's Michelin-starred Ocean Restaurant.
In addition to the excitement of the main event there will also be an auction with the opportunity for guests to bid for Mark to cook a gourmet dinner for ten in their own home and it is hoped that the auction will raise even more funds for Ty Hafan.
