On the 19th June four cars will embark on a rally - a rally like no other - the Cannon Ball Run but with a food. The cars will be driven by chefs and food industry professionals as they leave the Lake District in the UK with a mission to dine at as many Michelin starred restaurants as possible in 48-hours.
The teams will compete in a race that's sure to throw up some interesting stories and all to raise money for Hospitality Action, a fund to help hospitality professionals in hard times. It is organised by Visionary Dining, a forum to promote excellence in the hospitality industry.
The Fat Duck, Viajante, Rhodes W1 and The Three Chimneys in the Isle of Sky are just some of the restaurants on a list that stretches from London to Galloway. If the teams complete all the restaurants they will set an unofficial world record for the most Michelin restaurants dined at in 48 hours.
We will be riding along in one of the cars with Ben Spalding, Head chef at Roganic in London, Chris Warwick chef and director of the Marco Pierre White Wheelers Group and the photographer Mark Carr.
We will be tweeting as we travel, starting in Yorkshire at the top of England and finishing in London in the South. 31 restaurants, 48 hours, who knows how many dishes, miles and hours of sleep we'll get.
These are tough times for chefs and restaurant professionals around the world, but there has never been a better time to seek advice and help around a number of topics affecting hospitality workers. Here's a round-up of some of the most useful resources for chefs.
