Staying Cool launches competition to win penthouse dinner cooked by Birmingham’s hottest chef

Birmingham’s Staying Cool at the Rotunda has launched a competition for ten lucky people to be wined and dined free of charge in a sky-high penthouse apartment on Thursday, June 21st.

Five winners - and their guests - will enjoy a menu created by chef Alex Claridge, founder of The Wilderness restaurant and one of Birmingham’s hottest culinary talents. The ten guests will enjoy one of Alex’s brilliantly creative menus plus matched drinks on one of the longest nights of the year, giving them time to enjoy the expansive views across the city while devouring a delicious ten-course dinner.

Gavin Burns, General Manager of Staying Cool at the Rotunda, said:

”This is going to be a very special occasion. Alex is one of Birmingham’s most creative chefs offering his unique blend of playful and provocative food. We’re thrilled to have him back at Rotunda.”

The competition is part of Creative Heights, a series of events celebrating Staying Cool’s tenth anniversary in Birmingham. 

Alex was asked to take part in Creative Heights as he has worked with the Staying Cool team for many years, as Executive Chef. Alex develops the menus for Staying Cool’s DIY dining offer, Cooking Cool, and his Wilderness team can also be booked for private dining at the Rotunda. The Wilderness ran exclusive dining events at the Rotunda earlier in 2018 including a series featuring MasterChef the Professionals finalist Louisa Ellis.

Alex Claridge said,

“Staying Cool at the Rotunda is one of the most memorable places I've cooked. It will be a pleasure to help celebrate such a milestone with a team that I consider friends as well as colleagues. There is no better nor warmer interpretation of what hospitality should mean." 

The competition will be run until June 15th. To enter go to stayingcool.com/tenth/wildernesscompetition
