Three young chefs who have all been personally touched by cancer are presenting a charity dinner at Aylesbury College’s Hardings Restaurant in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The seven course feast (with a vegetarian option) costing £60 per head takes place on November 22 and with only 10 of the 40 places still available, food lovers need to act quickly to secure a seat.

Sam Monastyrskyj, 20, from Bedgrove, Matt Jones, 21, from Thame and Ed Avery, 21, from High Wycombe met when they were studying at the college.

Although they are all working in different places now, they remain in close contact and Sam hopes that one day they can work together.

“It is my goal to have my own place,” said Sam, a former Aylesbury Grammar School pupil, “hopefully with the two guys.”

In the past 18 months each of the m has seen family members affected by cancer.

So with their background and experience they decided to raise money for research into the disease.

Whilst at college Sam was involved in preparing food for visitors including Prince Andrew and delegates from the Olympic torch committee. And Matt is currently employed at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons.

Fred Reader, head chef of the college’s Hardings Restaurant has allowed the former students use of the kitchen and restuarant; and former students are helping with front of house, waiting on table and in the kitchen.
