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."
