The great and the good of Edinburgh came together at Macdonald Houstoun House hotel last month, to raise a staggering £20k for Parkinson's charity Wobbly Williams.

Led by the new, award-winning executive chef Jeremy Wares who launched his eponymous restaurant, Jeremy Wares at Houstoun House earlier this year and is also a Master Chef ofGreat Britain, the gourmet extravaganza saw six top Scottish chefs serve up a banquet of delectable dishes for guests.

The event was held to raise money for Wobbly Williams, an organisation that aims to bring a positive attitude to people diagnosed with Parkinson's; a charity very close to Jeremy's heart. The talented chef was diagnosed with the condition at the age of 36 - one of the youngest cases inScotland. Yet the award winning-chef is undeterred and determined to fully realise his vision and ambitions in the kitchen. 

He commented "We are thrilled with the overwhelming support and the fantastic amount of money raised on the evening. Thanks to the generosity of our food and drink supplier - and the support of the talented chefs - every penny made will be donated to help find a cure. Hosting this charity dinner is something I have wanted to do for a long time and I'm so pleased it has been such a success."
