Celebrity Chef brings some Seasonal Spice to the Golden Jubilee
The Golden Jubilee Foundation welcomed individuals diagnosed with breast cancer to a special, one of a kind, festive feast prepared and presented by celebrity chef and stand-up comedian, Hardeep Singh Kohli.
Taking over the kitchen of the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, the TV and radio star prepared a personalised three course meal thanks to the generosity of several donors to Breast Cancer Care. Bidding at a recent event, the group won an auction to win the prize of having the star come to their home to cook for them and friends. Instead, they decided to spread the holiday cheer, giving the prize back to the charity and inviting people affected by breast cancer and volunteers to a festive night out like no other.
Hardeep Singh Kohli, best known for his TV and radio shows and multiple sell-out cookery tours of the UK, worked with the Hotel’s Food and Beverage Team throughout the night to prepare the festive feast.
Breast Cancer Care is a UK-wide charity dedicated to providing care, information and support for those affected by breast cancer.
Chief Executive of the Golden Jubilee Foundation, Jill Young, said: “As the home of the Golden Jubilee National Hospital, we support Scottish cancer patients through our diagnostic and surgical services. With this in mind, it made perfect sense for us to welcome Breast Cancer Care and help them make an evening to remember.”
General Manager of the Golden Jubilee Conference Hotel, Gary Rice, commented on the evening saying: “This was an incredibly kind gesture from some of the amazing supporters of Breast Cancer Care and we were only too happy to host them, offer up our kitchen and do whatever we could to support this worthwhile cause.”
Nicolas White, Head of Scotland at Breast Cancer Care, said: “We’re so grateful to the Golden Jubilee Foundation for their hospitality and to Hardeep Singh Kohli for cooking for all of the guests.
Every year more than 4,500 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in Scotland, and that figure is only set to grow. With support from organisations such as the Golden Jubilee and the generous donors, we can be here for more people, whenever they need us.
Gary added: “To welcome Hardeep into our kitchen was not only a privilege and a testament to the fantastic facilities and team we have here at the Golden Jubilee, but was also great fun for everyone involved. The festive spirit was in full swing, complete with service with a smile as table service was provided by the donors who made the evening possible.
“As part of the Golden Jubilee Foundation, we are delighted to have worked with Breast Cancer Care to help support the fantastic work they do for those affected by this terrible disease, and would not only like to thank Hardeep for giving up his time this holiday season to do something wonderful, but the selfless donors who gave up their time and money to make this incredible evening come to life.”
