An evening with Henri Leconte: Intimate dining experience hosted and prepared by tennis legend

Henri Leconte to serve up four course meal for diners at The Rib Room on 4 December 2018, with a limited number of tickets still available 

London, 23 October 2018 : On Tuesday 04 December, Henri Leconte, the former world top five professional tennis player, will re-create his Masterchef semi-final experience with an exclusive evening at Jumeirah Carlton Tower’s Rib Room Bar & Restaurant. The event will be raising funds for StreetGames, a charity that supports sports participation for disadvantaged communities.

The tennis star will be working closely with Executive Chef of Jumeirah Carlton Tower Simon Young (a previous Masterchef mentor himself) to compare, cook, and serve his own personally selected four course menu to guests. Henri will welcome diners and then introduce each of the four courses, which will be paired with individual wines. With a reputation as a showman and for his mischievous sense of humour, the evening is destined to be an entertaining experience as Henri will also be showcasing some of his food preparation and cooking skills, as well as a Q&A session where guests will be able to probe Henri on his professional tennis career and cooking experiences.

The evening will be an intimate, one-off experience, with only 80 tickets available. An auction will also be presented on the night to support StreetGames.  Tickets are priced at £195 per person (full tables can be purchased for larger groups), and can be booked through calling The Rib Room Bar & Restaurant on 020 7858 7250.
