Showcasing and cooking recipes from our Khana Khana and Roots Kitchen Culinary Concepts.

The two events were full of live demonstrations, hands-on cooking, expert speakers, networking and more, providing NHS Chefs and Culinary members an opportunity to experiment with products from NHS frameworks, try delicious recipes from a range of culinary concepts and learn invaluable skills to take back to their own kitchens and trusts.

Lots of new information about the NHS Food strategy and nutrition. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and being able to interact with other trusts and share our experiences.
