The world-famous culinary team from Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel is turning its attention to supporting the Make A Wish, UK and the Samuel L Jackson Foundation and has designed an exquisite menu for the Closing Ball that will take place on Friday 5th August at the Royal Courts of Justice.

The Shooting Stars Benefit, hosted by Samuel L Jackson, takes place over two days with guests enjoying a two-round competitive golf tournament at the famous Wentworth Club with teams led by actors and professional golfers including Colin Montgomerie and James Phelps. The event will then round off with the Closing Ball at the Royal Courts of Justice with a red carpet champagne reception, gala dinner and auction and a live performance by an international artist.

Simon Young, Executive Chef at Jumeirah Carlton Tower Hotel, has designed a menu that stays true to the essence of the hotel’s food and beverage offering: focusing on the very best of seasonal produce. To start, a tian of plum tomato and basil with warm mozzarella fritters, the choice of a roast loin of Southdown lamb with butternut squash puree, Scottish girolles and spring roll of braised leg or Beetroot tortellini with roasted Mediterranean vegetables for main followed by Strawberry and Pistachio Fraiser or Dark chocolate " black forest " delice.

“We are delighted to be involved with such a prestigious event, supporting two extremely worthwhile, unique charities. We have tried to create a menu that will showcase the very best of British produce as well as appeal to an international audience many of whom will have enjoyed a day on the golf course.”
