The event, sponsored by Piglet’s Pantry, Fish Galore, City Utilities and Retail Distribution Services, is taking place in aid of Rockinghorse Children’s Charity which is a cause Steven is pleased to support: “I love working with local charities and think it’s really important to raise awareness of the work that Rockinghorse does. I have signed up for the Rockinghorse football team so it’s nice to be able to support the charity it two different ways.

“It’s an easy decision to work them and I really hope people will enjoy taking part in this event and help raise some much-needed funds for this great cause.”

Along with the 40-minute demonstration, attendees will also get the chance to take part in a raffle with some fantastic prizes including a five-course tasting menu for two from etch, hampers from Piglet’s Pantry and gift packs from Harvey’s Brewery in Lewes.

Stella Buckingham, events fundraising manager at Rockinghorse, is pleased to be able offer supporters something really special: “For the last year we have been unable to run many face to face events due to the pandemic so we are really excited that we have been able to arrange this amazing virtual event.

“To be able to learn directly from one of the best chef’s in the city, ask questions about technique and ingredients and even have a go at the recipe at home, it really is a once in a lifetime opportunity. And along with the fantastic raffle prizes available it’s sure to be a popular evening and the first of several ‘At the Chef’s Table’ events we are hoping to run.”

Tickets cost £40 per household and along with access to the virtual platform, guests will also receive a delicious bottle of sparkling Italian wine from Butler’s Wine Cellar in Brighton and a signed recipe card from Steven so that you can re-create the dish yourself at home.
