Last Night saw the launch of the the Action Against Hunger Chef Calendar we have been designing over the last couple of months. A great turn out with 200 names on the guest list at The Lockhart in Marble Arch, some absolutely superb food (check out the chicken drumsticks or burnt ends if you ever go) and fab wine supplied by Domaine Du Grand Mayne.
The calendar itself was the brainchild of Libby Andrews (Pho), who approached 12 top London Chefs, as well as the photographer Paul Winch Furness, and ourselves at KOTA, to collaborate and create a 2016 calendar in aid of Action Against Hunger. The brief we were given was for a clean, minimal style with desaturated colours and A3 in size. Each month had an image of one of the chefs in their restaurant and a seasonal recipe donated by them.
The full Chefs list is as follows; Brad McDonald (The Lockhart, Shotgun BBQ, 1235Donuts), Gary Usher (Sticky Walnut, Burnt Truffle), Tim Spedding (The Clove Club), Robin Gill (The Dairy, The Manor, Paradise Garage), James Lowe (Lyle’s ), Lee Westcott (Typing Room), Eryk Bautista (Newman Arms), Frederick Forster (Le Pont de la Tour), Jun Tanaka (The Ninth), Tomos Parry (Kitty Fisher’s, Shepherd Market), Tom Oldroyd (OLDROYD Restaurant) and Dan Doherty (Duck & Waffle).
