A MasterChef winner wowed guests at the Hampshire Food Festival with her culinary expertise.
Winner of the hit BBC show and Hampshire resident Jane Devonshire donated her time and talents to raise much needed funds for Ark Cancer Charity.
Ten food lovers gathered at The Myers Touch in Kings Worthy where they sipped Hampshire Chalkdown Sparkling Cider on arrival before savouring a six-course meal to remember. Each course was paired with a carefully selected wine chosen by the team at Berry Bros & Rudd in Basingstoke. Guests ended the meal with a Hampshire cheese board featuring Old Winchester Stoney Cross, Tunworth, Winslade, Two Hoots and Isle of Wight blue.
The fine dining experience was held as part of the Hampshire Food Festival organised by Hampshire Fare which involves a programme of more than 60 food and farming events held across the county throughout July.
Ark Cancer charity trustee Merv Rees said "The charity is so grateful to the wonderful Jane Devonshire, Hampshire Fare, The Myers Touch team, Paul and all at Berry Bros and Rudd, and all the fabulous Hampshire food producers who supported this very special fine dining evening.
The kind and generous support of all the diners who attended is very much appreciated, and I am delighted that they enjoyed such a marvellous and memorable evening. Their support for the charity is much appreciated, and their donations are another welcome step towards Ark's £5million fundraising target in support of the much-needed cancer treatment centre".
The success of Ark Cancer Centre Charity's £5m appeal will ensure a range of support services and complementary therapies are available alongside chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatments.
