Acorns Ambassadors present: Dine with Dan Lee

Tickets have now closed for our “Dine with Dan Lee” event.

Thank you to those joining us on Tuesday 10th October for an evening of culinary exploration, with a menu designed specially by MasterChef: The Professionals 2021 champion, Birmingham native, and culinary master, Dan Lee.

The evening boasts a fabulous five course feast, including welcome drink and wine provided throughout, kindly sponsored by Swallow Wholesale Drinks. It really is the perfect excuse for foodies and friends alike to get together in support of Acorns Children’s Hospice.

At Acorns, we understand the importance of sharing a meal with loved ones, whether that is during a seasonal celebration or just because.

By attending this event, you’re helping raise vital funds for Acorns, with all of the ticket cost being donated directly to Acorns to enable us to continue making memories for our children and families.

Tickets are now closed. Thank you to everyone who has supported Acorns at this event. Stay up to date with future events by joining the Acorns Business Club.

More about Dan Lee

“I am a British chef from Birmingham with my heritage being a mix of English, Irish and Cantonese… My heritage combined with my passion and love for travel has enabled me to gain experience and techniques from all different cultures and cuisine to create a unique approach to my cuisine. Taking inspiration not just from the dishes I have discovered on my travels, but the history and reasons why the dishes are created. I believe food is a universal language which everyone can relate to. Along with fine dining and tasting menus I want to create an accessible food culture for all.”
