Brand new for 2024, the Love British Food challenge is to deliver two portions of a plated main course using British pork with suitable garnish and accompaniments.

Competition duration: 60-minutes

The competition is open to all levels and is an opportunity to demonstrate skills and talent.

An audience will be able to watch as our eight kitchen stations cook the food in front of them.

Equipment provided in the kitchens include;

You are to provide everything for your dishes from the crockery, carriers, sauce boats etc and all ingredients with the exception of the main protein.
