Phil Campbell, of Goodman steak house in Mayfair, will be gracing the kitchen of Clarence House in Dalton tonight for the second evening of the Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Fund celebrity chef event.
But before that he has visited Ostley House Home for the Blind in Abbey Road to prepare a themed meal as part of the home’s Eat the World project.
Residents have embarked on a virtual culinary tour of the world which has already seen them visit Scotland and will later take them to China and Italy.
Mr Campbell has prepared a “Taste of America” using choice cuts of Cumbrian beef.
The lucky guests will sample onion soup, a roast rib of beef and a chocolate and cream tart with blood orange ice-cream.
Helen Winward, registered manager at Ostley House, said: “A lot of our residents are in their 90s, they are visually impaired and their manual dexterity is not what it used to be so food is very important, it’s the highlight of the day.”
Later today, Mr Campbell will be preparing a steak dinner for more than 100 hungry guests at Clarence House for the second of three £100 a night charity meals.
All the proceeds will go towards the Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Fund, a legacy of Barrow businessman Ray Armstrong.
Last night, Michelin starred duo Simon Rogan and Brett Graham wowed guests with a six course taster menu.
