Given we’re all just back from Christmas the idea of eating for 24 hours solid doesn’t necessarily sound like a huge challenge, but imagine cooking for 24 hours! That’s exactly what MasterChef losers Billy and Jack will be doing next month as they host a one-off supper club with a difference at Plum + Spilt Milk at the Great Northern Hotel.
This extravaganza of food and endurance will mark World Cancer Day, which falls on Sunday 4th February this year, and Billy and Jack will be hitting the kitchen from the 3rd all in an effort to raise £12,000 for their chosen charity.
Starting at 11am on Saturday 3rd February, the duo will aim to serve nine consecutive sittings throughout the period, including brunch, lunch, dinner and late-night feasting all in order to finish at 11am on Sunday. Each sitting will last two hours and will include a three-course meal, nibbles (including bread and their signature marmite butter), plus, of course, drinks.
Their worthy cause, Cancer Research UK, is personal too. Last June Billy was diagnosed a rare form of thyroid cancer after visiting the doctor with a persistent cough. A long operation later and with ongoing treatment Billy is on the road to recovery and, along with Jack, seeking to raise funds and awareness.
They will be joined by friends who will help along the way, including MasterChef 2016 winner Jane Devonshire, chef and author Sophie Michell, Plum + Spilt Milk’s Mark Sargeant and Mike Denman, Chef and cancer survivor, John Lawson, Jackson and Levine’s, Laura Jackson and others.
Tickets for Billy and Jack’s 24-hour supper club are on sale now.
