The Big Easter Egg Raffle at Classic Deli by Classic Fine Foods With Hospitality Action

Support our beloved Hospitality industry and celebrate Easter with us!

As a supplier of fine food ingredients for the hospitality industry for over ten years, we have decided to band together to support our sector following the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic by hosting a raffle to raise funds for Hospitality Action. Hospitality Action is a brilliant charity that provides a whole range of support to help people in the hospitality industry.

Discover the fantastic initiative from our Head of Culinary Development at Classic Deli and Pastry Chef at TheTasteLab, Denis Dramé MCA, with the exclusive collaboration of eight Pastry Chefs who donated their time to this egg-citing challenge



Hospitality Action provides financial relief to alleviate poverty for people who work or have worked in UK hospitality. They’re here for the chefs, waiters, housekeepers and managers. They’re here for the concierges, receptionists and kitchen porters. And they’re here for every sommelier, bartender, catering assistant and cook across the UK.  

When the first national lockdown began in March 2020, Hospitality Action helped many thousands of hospitality households in financial crisis. Just as in March, today millions of hospitality workers can’t go to work, and many thousands have lost their jobs for good. Since the outbreak of the pandemic Hospitality Action has worked tirelessly to help as many people as possible by providing emergency grants to keep food on the table, to assisting vulnerable industry retirees access local support, and by providing mental health resources for those who have struggled during the crisis.

Thank you!

CHEF’S TESTIMONIALS


Cherish Finden – Pan Pacific EXECUTIVE PASTRY CHEF

“Seeing our industry peers pull together in what has been an incredibly turbulent year and help not only the local community but each other has been truly remarkable. I am so proud to, along with my Pan Pacific London family, support Hospitality Action who have been pivotal in supporting individuals in our industry emotionally, physically, and financially. We know that we have a long way to go but there is light at the end of the tunnel and forging forward together has never been so important. “

Benoit Blin MCA – Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons EXECUTIVE PASTRY CHEF

"Our great industry, like many, has seriously suffered over the last year. For each of us, keeping our physical and mental health in good check has been an incredible challenge. This challenge will continue as we now begin to gear-up to the fast pace ahead of us, in which we thrive. We continue to work closely with each and every member of Le Manoir family and extend this through the hospitality industry.
It is a great honour for me and Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons to be able to help and support the remarkable work done by charity Hospitality Action and, on this occasion, driven by the incredible team at Classic Fine Foods. Thank you all in advance for your generous bids ;-)
Stay safe.”

Nicolas Houchet – Le Cordon Bleu PASTRY CHEF LECTURER

“The onset of COVID 19 pandemic posed a staggering health, mental wellbeing and a humanitarian challenge in all areas of our lives. Not only this is a devastating social crisis, it has also been one of the wider Hospitality industry’s biggest challenges which is ready now to emerge from the forced hibernation.
The proposed roadmap although delayed is very optimistic and I am very much looking forward to the “grand reopening”, the near future looks bright for chefs and future chefs which will soon be ready to join the ranks of our peers and colleagues in the hospitality industry.
I am honoured and delighted to be supporting Hospitality Action in their work to support services to help hospitality people back on their feet again after this setback through Le Cordon Bleu and the UK pastry team, and I would like to express my heartfelt thanks to your support in making this fund raising event a grand success.”

Luke Frost – Valrhona PASTRY CHEF INSTRUCTOR

“Hospitality Action supports members of our industry who need it the most and in turn I am very happy at the opportunity to support them. During the last 12 difficult months some people have lost their income and some have sadly lost more than that.
So by buying a ticket you are guaranteed to be rewarded by knowing you have helped a fellow industry colleague, and you may well be rewarded with some fantastic chocolate creations too!”
