A superb line up of culinary talent demonstrated their skills and expertise and shared many ideas, viewpoint and little hints and tips they have learned on their way to achieving recognition within this industry.
The event is held in the largest ballroom in Scotland, The Glasgow City Hotel and we required every inch of it. Our loyal sponsors also in attendance , another excellent opportunity to meet, network and expand our knowledge base and repertoire while catching up with other chefs, suppliers and old friends.
Once again it is our loyal sponsors who make the entire conference possible and so it is also a chance to meet the suppliers, their latest products and learn about new innovations from companies who can support chefs in kitchens and businesses and to network and socialise with fellow chefs and associates much of which is done at the evening dinner extravaganza.
Our compare again this year was George McIvor a past Chairman of the Master Chefs of Great Britain.
