The Burnt Chef Project launches 2024 Gala Dinner

Written by: Edward Waddell
Following the successful inaugural gala dinner in November 2022, The Burnt Chef Project has announced that its second headline event, titled Love Hospitality, will take place on Monday 25th March 2024 at London ExCeL.

Love Hospitality will see hundreds of people from across the hospitality and foodservice sector come together to celebrate the dedication and hard work from across the industry. The event will serve as a demonstration of all that can be achieved through our collective commitment.

Love Hospitality will also provide an opportunity for The Burnt Chef Project to raise vital funds to support the ongoing work of the social enterprise. Held on the first night of HRC 2024 in London, the event is set to take place in the Palace Suite at London ExCeL. 

Kris Hall, founder and chief executive of The Burnt Chef Project, said: “Bringing together hundreds of hospitality operators, businesses, suppliers and service providers, the night is set to be a true spectacle of everything that’s great about our incredible industry. The dinner will also be an opportunity to further raise awareness about the mental health challenge in our industry, ultimately helping to drive conversation.”

Unox, a manufacturer of professional cooking solutions, has again been confirmed as the headline partner for the dinner.

Scott Duncan, managing director at Unox UK, added: “We understand the pressures faced by operators and suppliers alike. That’s why we’re committed to helping spread the word, support those in need and reduce the stigma around mental health. Out of The Shadows was a fantastic celebration in 2022 and I’ve got no doubt that Kris and the team will deliver an even bigger and better event on the first evening of HRC 2024.”
