The 2013 winner of Masterchef: The Professionals, Steven Edwards (pictured), will host a six course dinner in support of eye research charity Fight for Sight this month.
To be held at the Printworks Kitchen in Clerkenwell, London, on February 4, the exclusive experience will see guests dine while blindfolded as part of the charity’s Feast your Eyes initiative.
Mr Edwards won the television competition two years ago and, at the age of 26, was the youngest ever chef to take the prize.
Having trained with well-known chefs including Raymond Blanc and Matt Gillan, Mr Edwards established his own company, etch, in 2014.
Speaking about the dining experience, he said: “As a chef your sight is essential, as it’s all about the attention to detail. I couldn’t imagine losing my sight.
“Eye research is important in helping create a future that everyone can see and I am looking forward to cooking for this special evening for Fight for Sight.”
Introduced this year, the Sight for Sight’s Feast your Eyes initiative aims to raise awareness of sight loss. From 16–22 October the charity called on people to support the campaign and raise funds by hosting a dining event in the dark.
