Janet plays a wild card
CHOCOLATIER Janet Coghlan followed her animal instincts when she met up with actress and wildlife champion Virginia McKenna.
Janet is working closely with Virginia’s Born Free Foundation to launch Tiger J’s hand-made chocolate truffles which will raise money for the charity. And last week she met up with the founder to plan the national launch – which will include welcoming Virginia and her team to Coghlan’s Cookery School at Sheepbridge, near Chesterfield.
Also at the meeting was Andy Greaves, son of football legend Jimmy, who is a partner in the project. Jimmy, a shareholder, will be helping to promote the brand.
He will also, no doubt, be backing this year’s Sporting Chefs dinner, a highlight on the Coghlan’s calendar, which takes place on October 7 at Chesterfield FC’s new b2net stadium.
The event has raised thousands of pounds for the BBC’s Children in Need appeal since it was launched three years ago. This time it will raise funds for Born Free Foundation too.
Around 175 guests will pay £60 each to enjoy a five course meal prepared by some of the areas best-loved sporting stars. Last year’s winners, footballer Gary Speed and boxer Clinton Woods, will be defending their crown against the challenge of fellow competitors – who are rumored to include Sheffield’s own Jessica Ennis.
The menu will include canapes and Champagne cocktail, followed by pork terrine, lobster and prawn salad, fillet steak Diane, a trio of desserts and finally coffee and petit fours.Share and Enjoy:
