Kenco Cappuccino 10/19

Skills Conference

July’s highly anticipated Skills for Chefs Conference is once again almost upon us. With workshops and demonstrations from Michelin star chefs, and addresses from Andrew Bennett MBE and Matthew Fort- the event will be truly unmissable.

The Conference is being held at Sheffield University from Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th.  Highlights of the conference will include:

  • the showcasing of chefs’ talents

  • the sharing of knowledge and skills through demonstrations and workshops

  • opening speech from Andrew Bennett, MBE

  • an audience with food writer Matthew Fort

  • and discussions of key issues closely linked to the industry

The event will also allow you to build relationships with suppliers and colleagues and ultimately extend your network.  The event is hosting an impressive lineup of chefs who will be running the culinary theatre over the two days.  There will also be small interactive workshops with chefs such as Alan Paton, who will be running a masterclass on black puddings on the Wednesday.

Take Stock will be there and we are really looking forward to seeing two-Michelin-starred chef Eric Chavot take part in the culinary theatre on Thursday alongside celebrated chef Mark Poynton. We are almost as excited for the Champagne and Canape reception prior to the Annual Gala Closing Dinner held in the stunning Firth Hall of the University on the Thursday Evening.  The five course meal will be served with a selection of fine wines and the lead chefs are Mick Burke, Tracy Carr, Debbie Gooder, Neil Taylor and Len Unwin.

There is a limited number of places- so don’t miss the opportunity to attend this exciting event- we’ll see you there!
