Cheshire Chef Demonstrates Skills at International Hospitality Show
"I used to compete against other Chefs at the show in something we call the Salon Culinaire, working for hours to create pristine plates of food but this time it was different. There were over 20 hand-picked national and international demonstrators over the five days in The Skillery and only one from the North - me!
"The bi-annual show attracts Hospitality professionals and acclaimed Chefs from across the globe who converge in London to discuss trends, look at new products and catch up with colleagues at grand dinners." - says Brian
Having just opened his cookery school in Cheshire, Brian is well known in the industry for his passion for training, developing programmes and enthusiastically passing on skills.
"Hotelympia gave us the perfect platform to launch our latest project which is The Chefs Academy designed for professional Chefs who want to develop, enhance and share skills. Harthill is a stunning location where we are surrounded by farms, cheese makers, game and clever artisan producers. Coupled with our excellent facilities at the school and access to experts, it's the perfect environment for Chefs to be inspired and learn from them."
The cookery school has already a successful programme of leisure courses enjoyed by novices and foodies from around the country.
Due to his high profile at hospitality trade events and to the success of the workshops he runs for his fellow colleagues, Brian has been invited to run 4 master classes at the University Caterers Annual Conference at the end of March in Blackpool. All sessions will showcase North-West produce and they have already received over 200 registrations.
