Celebrating the North’s finest chefs

We are delighted to bring together four award-winning chefs; Ellis Barrie of Lerpwl, Liverpool; Aiden Byrne of The Church Green, Lymm; Paul Leonard of The Forest Side, Grasmere (1 Michelin star) and Tom Parker of The White Swan, Fence (1 Michelin star), as they prepare a very special four course meal in our honour.

This much anticipated fundraising dinner, hosted by Paul Askew of The Art School Restaurant, will take place at Liverpool’s wonderful Hilton hotel, the perfect location to bring these outstandingly talented chefs together as they create delicious dishes to support countless hospitality families in crisis.

All guests will be treated to a canapé and drinks reception and a four-course meal with wine throughout, whilst having the opportunity to pose our chefs their questions during the live Q&A.

Chef Biographies

Ellis Barrie – Lerpwl, Liverpool
One of the infamous Barrie Brothers, Ellis attended a Saturday cooking course from the age of 12, and the rest is history. After his dad bought a campsite in Anglesey, Ellis and the family moved from Liverpool and threw themselves into making it a success. More recently, Ellis can be found at the Lerpwl, Liverpool. The Lerpwl is a bias for Welsh produce, priding themselves on supporting responsible local agriculture and sustainably sourced seafood.

Aiden Byrne – The Church Green, Lymm
Aiden Byrne is the youngest chef to win a Michelin Star at Adlards in Norwich at the age of 22. Aiden has enjoyed various head chef roles at many of the most iconic venues in the UK, including The Dorchester, Danesfield House and Manchester House. In 2008, Aiden and his wife Sarah opened The Church Green in Lymm with awards quickly following, including the 2012 AA Restaurant of the Year. Aiden has made numerous TV guest appearances including MasterChef, The Great British Menu and Restaurant Wars – The Battle for Manchester and he is also the author of ‘Made in Great Britain’.

Paul Leonard – The Forest Side, Grasmere
Paul has a great depth of experience working at the highest levels, cooking under the likes of Marcus Wareing and Andrew Farlie. Paul’s Michelin experience also includes retaining a Michelin Star at the Isle of Eriska on the west coast of Scotland. He joined The Forest Side in 2019 from the Devonshire Arms in Bolton Abbey.

Paul has been praised for his loving and simple use of local produce. This celebration of provenance is an ethos he has carried with him to The Forest Side, where the culinary experience is designed to be a reflection of the landscape of the Lakes in which it sits.

Tom Parker – The White Swan, Fence
Tom began his career at Northcote Manor, Langho Blackburn (1 Michelin Star), at the age of 16 as an apprentice. He went on to win Young Chef of the Year in 2011 (aged 21), and became a senior sous chef at 24.

During his time at Northcote, Tom went on a work placement to 3 Michelin Star De Leest, Netherlands. Wanting to gain more experience and see a little of the world, Tom went to Mexico to work at Capella; Mexico’s most renowned hotel and restaurant. Upon returning home Tom joined a new business venture with friends at The White Swan in Fence in December 2013, and went about changing it from a small local’s pub to a fine dining pub/restaurant which holds 1 Michelin Star.
