AWARD-winning chef Jean-Christophe Novelli is coming to Cannon Hall Farm in August for a one-off fund-raising evening in aid of our friend and colleague Tim Bilton.
On August 27, our marquee will be transformed into a demo kitchen for our 'Evening with' event - where all proceeds will go to help Tim's family make some amazing memories.
Tim is our head chef in the White Bull and ran the successful Spiced Pear before coming to the farm. He has been diagnosed with stage four cancer and is undergoing dual immunotherapy to try to give him some quality time with his wife and two sons.
Multi-Michelin Star chef Jean-Christophe heard about his battle through his blog - On A Knife Edge - and offered his services for free to help us raise money for Tim.
All proceeds from the evening will be given to Tim and his family.
On the evening, Tim will be talking about his battle and will be talking to Jean-Christophe about his own fund-raising work for Stand Up To Cancer.
Jean-Christophe will then take to the stage to do some cookery demos and discuss his varied career.
The evening will finish with music, mingling and a hot buffet in our White Bull restaurant.
Cannon Hall Farm's Robert Nicholson said: "We are really honoured that someone like Jean-Christophe has given up his valuable time to help us raise money for Tim and his family. Tim is really well thought of, being an experienced chef himself who once appeared on the Great British Menu, and so it really means a lot that people wish to support him like this.
"We really hope our farm fans get behind us to make this an amazing evening and to help us raise as much money as possible for Tim and his family."
