The Staff Canteen Live aims to bring the UK’s top chefs to a live stage to showcase their Michelin-starred dishes during interactive demonstrations; along with recipe guidance and cooking tips.

So far The Staff Canteen Live has featured at the Great Hospitality Show at the NEC Birmingham and Hotelympia in London.

With a daily changing line-up of chefs, you can get up close those who hold stars in the Michelin Guide UK, many of which have held them for a number of years. During the live demos the chefs regularly make their way into the audience, so not only can you see cooking at its finest, you can taste it too!

Chefs who have taken to the stage in the past include Tom Kerridge, Nathan Oulaw, Daniel Clifford, Tom Aikens and Claire Smyth.

Each session is streamed live on The Staff Canteen’s YouTube channel and/or Facebook page.

The Staff Canteen Live made its debut at the Great Hospitality Show in 2015 and Toby Wand, Managing Director at Fresh Montgomery said: “The Staff Canteen Live is an exciting new feature for The Hospitality Show and a real coup for next year’s event. Not only will visitors get the unique opportunity to watch and learn from some of the best in the business – they will also be able to enter into a Q&A, to address some of their own challenges in the kitchen. 

“This allied to the pomp and theatre of Salon Culinaire – truly one of the world’s premier cooking competitions – only serves to strengthen our proposition, making the show a must visit for anyone with an interest in the culinary arts.”

Mark Morris, Managing Director of The Staff Canteen, said at the time: “We are delighted to be expanding The Staff Canteen Live brand and see our partnership with Fresh Montgomery as the next chapter in that journey. 
“Our focus on delivering the best chefs in the UK is still our main driver and the line-up we have gathered certainly delivers that. We plan on making the event format more informal, more interactive and great fun: that is key to The Staff Canteen Live.”
