Snaps from special Marco Pierre White event at the SoL.
safc.com's snapper went behind the scenes at Marco Pierre White's Black Cats Kitchen event at the Stadium of Light.
First team stars Adam Johnson, John O'Shea and Phil Bardsley felt the heat in the kitchen as the TV chef cooked up a storm for hundreds of guests.
Winger Johnson romped ahead on the night as his main course was voted as best dish of the evening.
The event was hailed a great success by all involved and raised in excess of £20,000 for the football club's official charity, the Foundation of Light.
