The heat is on as two of the city’s most recognised chefs don their aprons and prepare to go head to head in a charity cook-off.

Lee Mangles from Silversmiths Restaurant and Simon Ayres from the Showroom Café Bar will be going head to head in aid of the charity Whirlow Hall Farm Trust.

A set menu from each team will be judged by diners at a pop-up restaurant at Sheffield Hallam University on Saturday, October 25.

Diners will pay £45 a head to tuck into a three-course meal made entirely from Whirlow Hall Farm produce and score each dish during the evening to find the ultimate winner.

With interactive scoring equipment, a live feed directly into the kitchen and a Gordon Ramsay look-a-like on hand to turn up the heat, organisers Whirlow Hall Farm say the event will be a memorable restaurant experience.

Half the diners will eat from the red kitchen, which will be sponsored by Moorland’s Charitable Trust and the other half from the black kitchen sponsored by Wosskow Brown Solicitors. Vegetarian options are available by booking in advance.

All funds raised from this event will go to the farm’s work with local children and young people.
