Chefs Peter Manifis and Guillaume Brahimi will cook up a storm for children in need.

The ball, which was launched last year, will feature a menu designed by the featured chefs and include canapes by Nobu Matsuhisa, who although he won’t be there, has been involved in the menu planning.

Brahimi, who will be cooking his beef daube, said he was looking forward to attending for the first time.

‘Variety WA is a great charity which looks after children in need and when someone approaches you to cook for them for one night, I just can’t say no,’ he said.

‘The great thing about Variety WA and an event like this is that all money raised stays within WA, so the money goes directly to WA kids in need.’

Brahimi said it was important to give back to those in need and in particular children going through hard times.

‘The children get so excited from such an event like this and there is nothing worse in the world than to see a sick child,’ he said.

‘So, for one night, spend some money and get a ticket. This kind of charity evening with six chefs from WA helping WA kids can only be a good night.

‘You don’t give to get something back, but the feeling you get after doing such an event, helping children and teaching cooking, is something you cannot get from anything else.’

Funds raised from the evening will help Variety provide practical equipment and experiences for WA children who are sick, disadvantaged or have special needs.
