On Sunday 8 of March, Alex Hely-Hutchinson, founder of 26 Grains and Stoney Street, and Head Chef Henrietta Inman, will host a line-up of some of London's best female chefs in celebration of International Women’s Day.

The evening’s wine list will be curated by sommelier, Francesca Diliberto, from Stoney Street’s neighbour, Flor.
Hely-Hutchinson said, 'For International Women’s Day I wanted to bring some of London’s female chefs together - we’re not only celebrating women in the industry but women everywhere.
'It’s a real honour for me to have all of these women cooking in Stoney Street’s kitchen; they’re people I respect and who inspire me, and this lunch will be an opportunity to showcase a host of different flavours, influences and talents in one afternoon.'
