The Staff Canteen app, Chef+, offers users instant access to chefs and recipes from the UK's top restaurants, most of which are listed in the Michelin Guide, AA Restaurant Guide and the Good Food Guide.

The app has so far reached 15,000 downloads which means we are well on the way to 'being in every chefs' pocket' and supplying them with fast, up to date content all on their phone.

Not only can you access our thousands of recipes and see behind the scenes of some of the best restaurants but you can interact with other chefs around the world. Be inspired by dishes created by Chef+ users and network with your peers all in one place.

But don't take our word for it! Some of our amazing members who use the app regularly have told us why Chef+ is their app of choice:

Alan Higgins, head chef of Nautilus restaurant

"I think the app’s fantastic – there’s nothing like it out there. It’s a great way of networking. I found it on Instagram and I use it all the time for showcasing my work and checking out what others in the industry are doing. All my guys in the kitchen, all of my team use it."

John Grabecki, head chef at BNY Mellon

"I like using the app for networking with other chefs, seeing their food and what they’re doing. I also like reading the articles and features that you guys put up, keeping myself up to date with hospitality news and trends."

Mark Morris, MD of The Staff Canteen said: "I think this shows it was right to make the investment in the app especially with 15,000 downloads in such a short space of time. Logging on to the app everyday inspires me and hopefully it can inspire a generation of chefs."

Lucy Wright, Brand Manager for Essential Cuisine the sponsors of Chef+, added:  "We’re delighted that Chef+ has reached 15,000 downloads. The app is full of inspiration, advice and delivers a real sense of community for its members. We look forward to continuing working with The Staff Canteen to get the app into the pocket of every chef."
