Michelin-starred pub chefs Tom Kerridge and Josh Eggleton are just two of the leading industry names who will be demonstrating their cooking skills at the Restaurant Show, which takes place at London’s Earls Court 2 next month.

Organised by William Reed Business Media – publisher of the Publican’s Morning Advertiser​ – the Restaurant Show will bring together more than 350 exhibitors, and attract restaurateurs, caterers and chefs, as well as key decision makers from across the industry, over a three-day period from 6-8 October.

Both Kerridge and Eggleton will appear at the show’s Centre Stage theatre, which will host chef demos, panel debates and food and drink matching sessions.

Kerridge, of the two Michelin-starred Hand & Flowers, in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, will showcase contemporary British dishes and reveal the secrets to his success.

Eggleton, who runs the Pony & Trap, in Chew Magna, near Bristol, is expected to talk about how he picked up his first Michelin star at the age of just 27.

Chef demonstrations

Other demonstrators include Clare Smyth, chef patron at London’s Restaurant Gordon Ramsay, who will focus on Scotland’s finest coastal fare as she creates a seafood dish from scratch.

Mark Hix' of Hix Soho and Hix Oyster and Fish House fame, in Lyme Regis, Dorset, also adds kudos to the list as he takes visitors on a gourmet journey through ‘whole food’ eating.

Meanwhile, Theo Randall, chef patron at Theo Randall at the InterContinental, in London, will turn his attention to authenticity by showing how rustic Italian cuisine can be created using seasonal ingredients.

Elizabeth Rigden, commercial manager for The Restaurant Show, said: “We’re thrilled to have such high-profile names on board at this year’s show. The sessions have been selected to address key industry trends and to offer businesses insight and inspiration for their food and drink offerings.

Rigden added: “Whether you’re a local pub, manager of a golf club, restaurant-owner or catering manager, we’ve ensured there’s something for everyone to get their teeth into.”
