Top Lawyer Turns Top Chef For The Night
19th March, 2013
Leading Chester law firm Aaron & Partners LLP is once again sponsoring The Great Chester Cook Off, with their very own ‘sous chef’ Tim Culpin cooking up some wonderful cuisine in this charity event on Sunday 21 April. The aim of the evening is to have fun whilst raising money towards the £3000 Helen Watson, Partner and Head of Employment Law team, is hoping to raise through her participation in the London to Paris cycle ride in aid of Claire House Children’s Hospice in July this year.
Tim Culpin, Head of Transport at Aaron & Partners LLP, can usually be found with his head in the latest copy of Commercial Motor but is swapping that for a recipe book in order to create his own three-course French dinner at award-winning Chester based French restaurant Chez Jules.
The event involves seven budding chefs choosing a dish with a ‘French twist’ using local produce and working together to create a unique menu of two starters, three main courses and two desserts. Each newly qualified ‘sous chef’ will be filmed in action and the footage show to the eager audience during the night. The paying guests will then decide which dish is best and vote for the overall winner.
Tim said, “We are always pleased to support Claire House Children’s Hospice and as I love cooking, this is a great way to fundraise for them whilst having fun! I’m not going to be giving away the secrets of my planned dishes yet, I’ll keep that for the night, but I can promise that the diners won’t be disappointed.”
Claire House is based in Wirral and provides respite, end-of-life and bereavement care for children and young adults with complex medical needs, up to the age of 23. They are also there to support the whole family, providing support and counselling for as long as is needed.
Helen Watson was a finalist in the Network She Fundraiser of the Year 2013 awards in recognition of her fundraising efforts in regards to her cycle ride across India last year where she raised over £4,200 for Claire House and Women v Cancer. Of her latest venture she said, “I have long been a strong support of Claire House and I’m always happy to help raise much needed funds and awareness of this vulnerable charity.”
