"Think Quick. Think Colourful, Think Nutritional”

Brand new for 2024, the Vegan Challenge is to produce a vegan dish that will appeal to vegans, vegetarians & meat eaters alike.

Competition duration: 30-minutes

The competition is open to all levels and is an opportunity to demonstrate skills and talent for this growing market.

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;
