12 Michelin Stars, 6 Chefs, 1 Harrods Table – 25 spaces only
22.09.22: Harrods is to bring 6 of the worlds’ most respected chefs – with a combined 12 Michelin stars – together for a once-in-a-lifetime banquet for charity.
For almost 175 years, Harrods has brought the world’s finest luxury to the world. It is now bringing the most visionary culinary talents to London, to host the worlds’ most decorated luxury dining experience.
On the 22nd September, Harrods is bringing together six of the worlds most decorated and respected chefs for the very first time, to develop and personally prepare a once-in-a-lifetime banquet for Harrods guests and Luxury Restaurant Club members; at the Harrods Table. These six visionary talents – Björn Frantzén, Jason Atherton, Tom Kerridge, Dave Pynt, Angelo Musa and Phil Khoury – will be gathered together in this iconic location in celebration of the vibrant culinary scene of London, and the global stage offered by Harrods as a world-leading dining destination.
All six chefs are partners of current or upcoming restaurants at Harrods, which currently hosts more Michelin starred chefs under one roof than any other location in London.
Together, they will create a 12 Michelin-starred meal, with all proceeds going towards Refettorio Felix at St. Cuthberts, which – as part of Massimo Bottura’s Food for Soul network – is dedicated to relieving poverty and supporting vulnerable Londoners through the power of a shared meal.
Hosted in a specially designed space inside Harrods, 25 guests will enjoy 6 courses personally prepared and served by the chefs, paired with acclaimed vintages from the Harrods cellars.
The 6 chefs, each a pioneer and leading visionary in their own specialist form of cuisine, will prepare the following within the Harrods kitchens, to be personally served in the Harrods Table dining room, together with specially chosen liquids pairings.

Gathering these six visionaries – who are at the absolute top of the culinary world – together for one night, was no easy feat. However, they were happy to come and celebrate their style of cooking and to prepare a meal together in London’s most iconic setting, and in aid of a fantastic cause. I am excited not only to see the once-in-a-lifetime banquet that they prepare, but also to raise as much as we can for charity. To see these chefs together in one place, to see how they inspire and challenge each other to create the worlds most exclusive meal, will a dream come true for the lucky gourmands who join us on the night.Ashley Saxton, Director of Restaurants at Harrods
