‘Who’s Cooking Dinner?’ is very much a part of the London restaurant world and is generously supported by many in the industry. It is the brainchild of Chris Corbin & Peter Gordon, both of whose lives irrevocably changed in 1994.
At the age of 38, Chris was diagnosed with chronic myeloid leukaemia. After an anxious, four-year wait, a suitable bone marrow donor was found and, in 1994, Chris underwent a transplant. He now chairs ‘Who’s Cooking Dinner?’ and is the Chairman of Leuka.
In 1994, New Zealand-born chef Peter Gordon donated bone marrow to his sister Tracey, who was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia. After her full recovery, Peter wanted to help other families battling with leukaemia, and came up with ‘Who’s Cooking Dinner?’.
