Celebrity chefs have been instrumental in creating stylish and delicious food that we have to come to know and love.  


And now some of these ‘masterchefs’ have agreed to support our Host for Hope campaign this year by each providing a signature recipe to enhance your Host for Hope party. 


“I am really pleased that Brain Tumour Research asked me to contribute to their Host for Hope campaign. The survival rate for brain tumours is shockingly low and not enough money is being spent on research to change this. Why not host a delicious dinner party to raise funds to help them find a cure?”


Chris Wheeler - Executive Head Chef at Humphry's, Stoke Park. Boasting 3 AA Rosettes, Humphry’s offers Modern British cuisine with a twist, featuring plenty of Chris’ signature dishes. Try Chris' Host for Hope recipe this summer.

“Brain tumours kill more children and adults under the age of 40 than any other cancer, yet just 1% of the national spend on cancer research is allocated to this devastating disease. I am proud to support Brain Tumour Research’s Host for Hope campaign and hope that you enjoy my recipe.” 


Antonio Favuzzi - Head Chef at L'Anima, an award winning Italian restaurant in the heart of London offering the finest of contemporary Italian cuisine in surroundings nothing short of sheer elegance.

“Host for Hope is a great, fun way of raising money and awareness for brain tumours and I am very pleased to have been asked to take part! Brain Tumour Research are funding dedicated research centres in the UK and the more who join in, the sooner they will find a cure.” 


Luca Terraneo - Head Chef at L'Anima Cafe. With the same soul as L’Anima in a less formal environment, L’Anima Café offers honest food with its soul in Southern Italy. Try Luca's recipe at your event this summer. 

“I am proud to be supporting the Host for Hope campaign. Enjoy my recipe and please, help fund the fight against brain tumours.”

Valentine Warner Host for Hope Brain Tumour Research Summer Party Fundraising Campaign Help Feed Vital Research“I’m delighted to support Brain Tumour Research and Host for Hope. What an excellent idea – to throw a summer party and raise funds for a hugely important cause. Brain cancer is scary and life-threatening. In the UK it’s the biggest cancer killer of children and adults under 40 yet the research needed to improve outcomes for patients is woefully underfunded. So enjoy my recipe, have a great party while you Host for Hope – and why not empty your wallet as well as your glass!”
