Win a gourmet event for your community, hosted by one of the country's top chefs


This competiton has now closed.

Do you know a group of people who deserve a top-notch meal cooked by a celebrity chef? They might be hard-working volunteers whose efforts go unsung. Or staff at a caring organisation who’ve gone the extra mile. Or they might be a group of like-minded people who meet up regularly, perhaps to sing, read or walk.

Whatever the reason, Waitrose is offering you the chance to win one of 5 free dinner parties for them – with food cooked by a top chef or chefs, at a location near you, on a date next year.

Chefs cooking at the events so far include Great British Bake Off star Martha Collison, Michelin-starred Atul Kochhar, and twins David and Stephen Flynn, also known as The Happy Pear.

Collison will provide afternoon tea, Kochhar will cook an Indian-themed meal, and The Happy Pear will focus on vegetarian and vegan dishes.

Locations big enough for a party of between 10 and 30 people will be chosen by Waitrose and spread out across the UK.

Entrants will need to tell Waitrose about the group of people they would invite, why they deserve a meal cooked for them, and whereabouts they are in the UK so that dates and venues can be arranged. The competition runs until midnight on Sunday 10 December.
