Jemma Kidd has joined forces with renowned Chelsea restaurant Papillon this London Fashion Week to develop an exclusive menu of her favourite dishes in support of Children with Leukaemia www.leukaemia.org
In recognition of London Fashion Week’s 25th Anniversary celebrations, the Jemma Kidd menu is priced at £25, with £5 from every menu sold going to charity. Everyone who orders the menu will be given a Jemma Kidd Make Up School goodie bag including lip gloss and ultra soft cleansing wipes, with a value of over £30 to thank them for their support.
Kidd said: “I’ve been in the industry for many years both in front of and behind the cameras. There’s still a myth that all models live on salad leaves. I love my food and have been coming to Papillon for years. I wanted to do something to support such a worthy cause and we came up with a menu of my favourite dishes.”
“These are my dinner party staples that I rely on time and again. The secret of my rack of lamb is a drop or two of Worcestershire sauce in the gravy to give it a real depth of flavour. it’s a simple cheat, but it works.”
David Duverger, head chef, Papillon, agreed: “The charity is dear to my heart having lost my young nephew to cancer seven years ago. At Christmas I sold myself on eBay for Christmas day and raised £6,000 for Children with Leukaemia. I wanted to find another way to continue the fundraising and Jemma came up with some fantastic dishes for a special menu. We get a lot of visitors from London Fashion Week as it is just down the road from us – I think they’ll be curious to see Jemma turn her hand to another craft.”
The menu will be available at Papillon throughout London Fashion Week (20 – 25 February 2009) www.papillonchelsea.co.uk
