Grilled Live by The Staff Canteen is back!

The Staff Canteen

Grilled live by The Staff Canteen is back - for the second time the podcast will be hosted and recorded in front of an audience!

Following the huge success of Grilled Live at The Gannet in Glasgow, The Staff Canteen have teamed up with The Chilli Pickle in Brighton, to host the second live recording of the show, sponsored by Rational.

On June 5, the host of Grilled, Cara Houchen, editor of The Staff Canteen, will be joined by a very special line-up of guests.

They, and anyone lucky enough to get a ticket, will sit down for a unique dinner created by chef owner of The Chilli Pickle, Alun Sperring.

As they work their way through the menu they will be ‘grilled’ with questions from Cara and the audience plus expect games, never heard before stories and a few other surprises.


The guests will be Jodie Kidd, Fashion Model, Racing Driver, TV Personality & Pub Owner; Daniel Clifford, chef owner of two Michelin-starred Midsummer House and Michael O'Hare, chef owner of Michelin-starred, The Man Behind The Curtain in Leeds.

Cara Houchen said: "Our first Grilled Live was sell out and a really unique experience. For our second live we have made even more tickets available and myself and my guests can't wait to get in front of everyone! If you listen to Grilled already, the live version is unedited, so you will get to hear all the bits I'm not normally allowed to publish.

"To get an idea of what to expect you can listen to previous podcasts with Michael and Daniel - it won't be for the faint hearted! So, if you want a fast paced, up close and personal dinner with three amazingly honest and funny guests, grab your tickets now before they are gone."

Tickets are £80 per person and include a three course meal.
