A full menu of cookery demonstrations, served up by a first-class league of prominent chefs, are set to take place at the Hotel and Catering Show on Tuesday March 13 and Wednesday March 14.

Sponsored by Platinum Recruitment, the specialist hospitality and catering recruitment agency, the Platinum Theatre will host a full programme of lively and informative demonstrations throughout the two days of the Bournemouth International Centre-based show.

The first chef to take centre stage on March 13 will be the executive chef of The Pig Hotel in Brockenhurst, James Golding.  James has perfected a plot-to-plate concept at The Pig, whereby the kitchen garden has become an integral part of his operation.  He will be demonstrating with his key lieutenants, not sous chefs, but forager and kitchen gardener.

Giles Thompson, chef patron of Chichester-based The Earl of March, is also set to take to the stage with John ‘The Fish’ Bell of Bells Fish in Wimborne to provide an interactive demonstration.    Other chefs confirmed include Jason Hornbuckle, head chef at Sandbanks-based The Haven Hotel, who leads a 12-strong team at the hotel’s two AA red rosette restaurant, La Roche, and Adam Byatt, chef patron of Trinity Restaurant in London, who is due to publish his second cook book early this year.

Other sessions to take place in the Platinum Theatre include food and wine matching, co-ordinated by Zonin UK, and cheese and beer tasting tutorials, hosted by Charlie Turnbull from Turnbull’s Deli in Shaftesbury, to match the finest ales with outstanding cheeses.

Anna Wallis, show organiser, says: “We have a fabulous programme of demonstrations this year.  All will be fun and lively with the aim to encourage the audience to participate, ask questions as well as sample the many recipes created by each of these food experts.  Providing visitors with the chance to learn some cookery secrets from the experts, this feature at the show is a must for people who are interested in cooking with fine local produce.”
