Top chef to cook meal for Barrow blind home’s residents and workers

A TOP chef will be cooking up a delicious lunch for the residents and staff of a Barrow home for the blind.

Phil Campbell, head chef of Goodman Mayfair, a renowned London steak house, will be heading to Ostley House Home for the Blind in the new year to treat more than 60 people to a fine lunch.

The special event has been organised by Lake District Farmers to coincide with its second celebrity chef event, being held in association with Clarence House Country Hotel, Dalton, from January 31 to February 2.

John Cadieux, the executive chef of the Goodman group, and Mr Campbell are putting on the Goodman Steak Night at the four-star Furness hotel on February 1 during the three-day culinary extravaganza.

On January 31 Mr Campbell will host a steak-themed event at Ostley House specially for the residents and staff, after a suggestion by Steve Winward, of Lake District Farmers.

The celebrity chef event will also feature the top culinary names such as Simon Rogan, Brett Graham, brothers Chris and Jeff Galvin and Angela Hartnett, raising thousands of pounds for good causes.

The Lake District Farmers Armstrong Family Charitable Fund benefits charities and good causes across the community in the name of the late Ray Armstrong, who was the boss of PKA and Lake District Farmers.

Dan Austin, the managing director of Lake District Farmers, said the Ostley House event is the first of its kind.

Mr Austin said: “The celebrity chef event raises thousands of pounds for charity but we have also been looking at how we can maximise their time here.

“Ostley House does a wonderful job with how well it looks after the residents and we wanted to give something back and give the residents a fabulous day and something very different.”

This year some £25,000 has been donated to community groups and individuals thanks to the inaugural celebrity chef event last year.

Tickets for the celebrity chef event cost £100, with a champagne reception included. To buy tickets call Sarah Earley on 01229 870168.
