Double Michelin-starred pub chef Tom Kerridge has announced plans to host a one-off supper club at a Hampshire gastropub.

Kerridge, owner of the double Michelin-starred Hand & Flowers and the Coach, both in Marlow, will host the dinner on 8 December at the Greyhound on the Test, Stockbridge, in aid of the Alex Lewis trust. 

Preceeding this Adam Byatt, chef patron of Trinity and Bistro Union, will host a similar evening at the pub on 13 October. 

Lucy Townsend, owner of the Greyhound on the Test, said: “We are absolutely thrilled to be welcoming Tom and Adam into our kitchen for what we are sure will be two very special evenings and we really appreciate all the support they’ve given to my partner Alex.”

Life-changing

Lewis, Townsend’s partner, was previously struck by a life-changing illness. Proceeds from Kerridge’s evening will go to funding his rehabilitation, wheelchairs, home adjustments, prosthetics and their maintenance.

Ticket prices are yet to be confirmed.

Local newspaper the Bucks Free Press ​reported earlier this year that Kerridge was in talks to take on a third pub in Marlow​, Greene King site O’Donogues.

However, Kerridge declined to comment at the time and no further developments have been reported.

World-renowned

He recently hosted a one-off Sunday lunch​ at the hand and flowers with world-renowned French chef Alain Ducasse, owner of the triple Michelin-starred London restaurant Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester.

Dishes served included English parsley soup with smoked ell and garlic, treacle-cured beef fillet with chou farci and Yorkshire pudding, langoustine with summer vegetables and Eton mess.

Kerridge’s fourth book, a cookbook chronicling the diet he used to drop 12 stone in two and a half years​, will be released in early 2017.
