The Staff Canteen Live will showcase the culinary skills of some of the UK’s leading chefs as they recreate dishes from their own establishments in a highly interactive environment. Gain an unrivalled insight into the chefs’ skills and recipes as they offer advice and take questions throughout the live cooking demonstration.

Leading the stellar line-up, Birmingham's very own Glynn Purnell is set to showcase a special dish from the menu of his eponymous, Michelin-starred restaurant in Birmingham. He will also be joined by head pastry chef, Luke Butcher. The pair will be appearing on stage, demonstrating how they create dishes for the menu at Purnell’s.

Held in conjunction with speciality produce supplier, Westlands and Chef Works, Callebaut, Gram and Wild Atlantic Prawns, The Staff Canteen will be running regular sessions every day of the three-day show with a changing line-up of chefs providing visitors with interactive demonstrations, recipe guidance and cooking tips.
