Chefs Demonstrations by renowned local Chefs will start at 11am and run on the hour. Althams Catering Butchers, who have organised the demonstrations, will be supplying some of the local ingredients which visitors will watch being cooked and then taste.

Café Ambio will also be on site, run by Andrew Southcott. The Café bar will be serving delicious home cooked lunches and light snacks using some of the finest local produce on show.

Over in the full trade side the atmosphere will be bustling with local suppliers showcasing their new products and services, sharing ideas and networking with the hospitality trade.

The dinner menu will feature local produce and promises to be a gourmet night to remember. Tickets are limited so call us now on 015394 44495 to book your places.
