The Staff Canteen asked you to nominate the chefs you thought had the best beards ahead of World Beard Day and you didn't disappoint!


We had over 150 nominations so we decided it was time for a 'beard-off' in the ultimate battle of the (chef) beards. The Staff Canteen picked 20 of our favourite nominees and now we want our followers to pick the winner!

The Ultimate Guide on How to Trim a Beard 

Knowing how to trim a beard is very important.

Check out  the ultimate guide here: www.mens-hairstylists.com

The chef with the most votes compiled together from Facebook, Instagram and this page will win The Staff Canteen mug (of course!) the latest Tom Kitchin book, Meat and Game, plus a selection of goodies from The Bluebeards Revenge which is worth £50 and includes a Cuban blend beard oil, classic blend beard oil, moustache wax, beard brush, moustache comb and moustache and beard scissors.

PLUS a chance to takeover our instagram for a day and take us behind the scenes in their kitchen.

For two lucky runners up The Bluebeards Revenge have two bottles of beard oil and we'll chuck in a mug too!

So, the important bit, how to vote. Simply write the name of the chef you think deserves to win in the comment box for this article or if you want to vote on Facebook LIKE the picture of the chef you want to win.

On instagram simply write the name of the chef you want to win in the comments.

You can vote once on each platform, multiple votes will not count - if you are one of the lucky 20 you need to get your mates to start voting as it will close on Monday, September 4 at 5pm.

 The votes will be counted and the winner plus the runners up will be notified and then announced on our social media.

Good luck!
