At our Annual Butterfly Ball the “Star Prize” for our raffle was for MasterChef Quarter Finalist Chris Hale to come to your home and cook for up to 6 people. The extremely lucky winner was Dawn Saberton and on March 12th Chris cooked a superb 3 course Thai meal for Dawn, Mark her husband, and her mother & father In-Law Jean & Russ. I personally called in to meet Chris and thank him. Chris was brilliant, despite me disrupting his cooking he took time to chat about the Charity and also about his plans for the evening. Watching the food start being cooked I became extremely envious and thanked Chris before making a reluctant exit. Dawn and her family were nothing but complimentary about the evening and were honoured for Chris to have given up his time and tremendous food to cook for them, he even washed up.
On behalf of the Saberton’s and on behalf of everyone at The Samantha Sykes Foundation we like to say a massive thank you. Chris Hale donated everything for the evening himself, and I doubt very few people will ever have someone with Chris’s skills in their home. Chris has offered to help again and we will keep you informed, hopefully we will be arranging a pop up restaurant in the Wakefield area, where Chris will be cooking for lucky customers. Watch this space !!! If you would like to sample Chris’s food check him out on Facebook you will not be disappointed.
