Only eight places left for this excellent dinner hosted by Purple pager Roger Jones (pictured) in aid of the Master Chefs of Great Britain, a charity with raises money to train and educate young people in the catering trade. Great food, fine wines and all for a bargain price of £60.

Michelin-starred chef Roger says: 'We have managed to secure some pretty fantastic wines to go with a 7 course dinner that I (together with students from Westminster) will be cooking for 150 guests.' See below for the menu and accompanying wines.

Training young people is close to Roger's heart and something he and Sue of the Harrow in Little Bedwyn are are clearly very good at - see A rising star at 16 for the recent success of their protégées.
