Steven Bennett is one of two top chefs cooking for diners at the hospice this Valentine's Day.
Lincolnshire Chef Steven Bennett and the Grimsby Institute’s Paul Robinson are taking over the kitchen at St Andrew’s Hospice on the most romantic night of the year.
Their Valentine's Dinner, from 7pm on February 14 here at the hospice, won't only be romantic... every penny from the tickets is for hospice funds.
You can find out more about the event itself and how to book here, but first, have a read about The Lincolnshire Chef.
Steven learned his trade growing up as a baker’s and butcher’s son in Louth. He went on to work in some of the county’s top eateries before establishing the award-winning Comfy Duck restaurant, based at the Oaklands Hall Hotel, and outside catering company The Lincolnshire Chef.
He said: “It’s such an honour to be able to work at St Andrew’s Hospice and to be a part of something that’s a little out of the ordinary to help highlight this established local charity. Everything that we do in the The Comfy Duck comes from our seasonal and locally-sourced ethos and working with local charities is a huge part of what we do.
“It’s exciting to be able to create and serve a menu for Valentine’s Day and to be able to serve it outside of the restaurant. On the evening, I’ll be teaming up with Paul in the kitchen, and he will also be proving the front-of-house team, who will be serving the restaurant. This is a great opportunity for students at the Institute to gain industry experience and give something back to the local community at the same time.”
