It's going to be a busy and action packed 2014 for The Staff Canteen and we are gearing up to be busier than ever here at cooking towers, with the launch of yet another digital feature "On my menu".   An image and recipe lead feature that will show case some of the UK's finest chefs current menu dishes through a range of professional pictures and recipes, that will be accessed via their chef profiles on The Staff Canteen website. The feature will kick off in January 2014 and in the first month will see Michelin star chef Paul Ainsworth from Number 6 in Padstow and Paul Foster from Tudenham Mill in Suffolk, who will both be sharing six current menu dishes to really kick this feature off with a huge bang! For the Paul Ainsworth shoot we've teamed up with photographer David Griffen, who’s worked previously with Paul and the team at Number 6 and is based in Cornwall. For Paul Foster, we teamed up with John Blackwell, John of course created those amazing images in the award winning Sat Bains cook book “Too many chiefs only one Indian”. The Staff Canteen managing director Mark Morris said “recipes are now are third highest landing page, so this feature offers our audience and members more quality content that can be accessed either through their walls and profiles or of course through Chef +, the first APP for professional chefs. We want to create a non text piece that could still inspire and potentially educate chefs of all levels”.
