The Staff Canteen is delighted to welcome on board a new member of the team, Editor Cara Houchen.

Cara will be responsible for the ever expanding editorial team. She has a background in media production and journalism. She lived and worked as an intern in London gaining experience at The People and Princess Productions. She then relocated to the North East and qualified as a journalist. She has worked as a senior features writer at the Sunderland Echo for the last six years and became Deputy Editor of its sister magazine, Etc, in 2012.

“I’ve been fortunate to move to Dorset which is a beautiful county and I was looking for a new and challenging role,” explained Cara. “Being a lover of food and fine dining, The Staff Canteen combines my favourite things and allows me to delve into the world of top chefs and restaurants. Delivering fabulous food, chefs with talent and trending cuisine to fellow gastronomy lovers is an opportunity I will definitely enjoy getting my teeth into!”

Managing director of The Staff Canteen, Mark Morris said: “We are delighted to welcome Cara on board, and see the opportunity to both improve and expand our chef focused content as key to our success and growth. We are excited about this chapter in our development.”

In these challenging times…

…the hospitality landscape has dramatically changed in the last two months, and with that our advertising revenues have all but expired, significantly impacting our business. Despite having to furlough a large portion of our staff, we are still delivering the valuable content and honest information, which hundreds of thousands of you come to The Staff Canteen for. We believe we have a critical role to play in informing and supporting our audience. We need your support right now, more than ever, to keep The Staff Canteen active. Without your financial contributions this would not be possible.

Over the last 12 years, The Staff Canteen has built what has become the go-to platform for chefs and hospitality professionals. As members and visitors, your daily support has made The Staff Canteen what it is today. Our features and videos from the world’s biggest name chefs, are something we are proud of. We have over 500,000 followers across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and other social channels, each connecting with chefs across the world. Our editorial and social media team are creating and delivering engaging content every day, to support you and the whole sector.

Your financial support means we remain independent and open to all. We were launched by a chef and remain the voice of chefs and other hospitality professionals.

We need your support to keep delivering the products and content that you love, giving you the platform to share opinions and inspiration. Every contribution whether big or small, means so much.
Support The Staff Canteen from as little as £1 today. Thank you
