Issue 312 – “Come dine with us and win” says celebrity chef

Celebrity chef, Simon Rimmer, is urging people in Frome to get cooking for charity to be in with a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

The chef from BBC’s ‘Something for the Weekend’, is fronting the charity initiative for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign, encouraging people to throw a dinner party for their friends to raise much needed charity cash. In return, the TV star and restauranteur is judging an online competition to find the best dish in the south west.
Talking about the competition Simon said, “I love seeing all the photos of everyone’s food on ‘Something for the Weekend’ so it’ll be great to see people cooking up some magic in the name of charity. Hopefully there will be some fab looking dishes and strong competition for the prize.”
Come Dine with Us is a simple and tasty way to raise money for UK’s leading charity fighting against muscle disease. People can simply choose an event that they want to host, invite their guests and ask them for a donation in return for the wonderful dishes created.
Gary Kernahan head of volunteer fundraising at the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign said, “It’s brilliant that someone as respected in the culinary world as Simon is supporting us and asking people to get involved. It’s a really fun way to do something for charity so I hope people get cooking for the Muscular Dystrophy Campaign and help the 70,000 babies, children and adults with muscle-wasting diseases in the UK.”
Prizes for the best looking dish include meals for two at restaurants all across the UK, a Christmas food hamper courtesy of Park Foods, tickets to top attractions including the Tower of London and a selection of celebrity cook books.
