We are excited to announce more chefs in our line-up for The Staff Canteen Live 2016 – Skillery in association with Westlands and supported by the Craft Guild of Chefs at Hotelympia.

Making our debut at Hotelympia, we are adding a stimulating new dimension of kitchen demonstrations and advice from big name chefs. Today we can confirm that Daniel Clifford, chef patron at Midsummer House and Daniel Pearse, head chef for Hakkasan Group, will be joining us on stage!  

Daniel Clifford - Midsummer House Restaurant
Daniel Clifford

Born and raised in Kent, Daniel Clifford, began his promising career working for some of the biggest names in the industry including Simon Gueller at Rascasse and Marco Pierre White at the Box Tree.

He took over the reins of the Midsummer House back in 1998 earning the restaurant’s first Michelin star in 2002 with a second to follow in 2005.

Daniel Pearse grew up in a small village in Somerset where he quickly fell in love with cooking and pastry. After working in a local hotel Daniel moved to London to learn more about pastry. Having worked under Graham Hornigold at the Mandarin Oriental, Graham asked Daniel to become head of pastry when he moved to the Hakkasan Group.

Daniel now heads up pastry at Hakkasan’s two London restaurants, Mayfair and Hakkasan Hanway Place.
