Anglia Factors raises over £500 for Art For Cure with Asian Cooking Demo

Late last month Anglia Factors, the makers of bespoke kitchens and interiors, hosted an Asian Cooking Demonstration with local chef and restaurateur, Vernon Blackmore which raised over £500 for Art For Cure.

Vernon brought with him guest chefs including his mother, Chiu Blackmore, who previously owned Satis House. Chiu cooked a very popular soy braised chicken dish with mushrooms.

In addition, Vernon’s friend Graham Kill – who has spent a long time in China – took to the stove to cook traditional Chinese spring onion pancakes.

Vernon, who owns The Table and The Anchor in Woodbridge, stunned guests with a Cambodian fish amok – A steamed or baked, slightly set fish curry.

Daniel Barr, Owner of Anglia Factors, enthused: “We run these events so customers can be inspired to cook different things and see the fabulous appliances in our demonstration kitchen be put through their paces but great chefs. Vernon, Chiu and Graham provided a relaxed and very entertaining demonstration for a friendly and interested crowd. We’re delighted to have raised over £500 for Art For Cure to kick off our fundraising ahead of the Asia Bike Ride we’re doing in November, which Vernon is doing too! Naturally, we pay for all our travel and kit so every penny we raise goes to Art For Cure.”

The Art For Cure Asia Bike Ride is a 450km cycle through the heart of the Mekong Delta. Endless miles of country roads passing ancient temples they cycle through Saigon, Phnom Penh and Angkor.
