The  Staff Canteen

In association with

The Staff Canteen app in association with Essential Cuisine which launched in April, has already seen more than 4000 which is an amazing start and something we'll be building on here at Cooking Towers.

The app is designed to ensure we reach more chefs so we can offer them the opportunity to access The Staff Canteen quicker, easier and direct from their smart phones. 

Audience engagement is a key driver in our success and giving chefs the opportunity to be inspired is part of our goal.

We know chefs are visual learners, simply look at the rise of Instagram and the chefs now using this platform. Our account  is growing by over a 1,000 new followers each week.

It's been extremely exciting watching the amazing content being added each day to The Staff Canteen, where we now have over 21,000 image posts alone on the site, something we'll continue measuring to gauge the success of how chefs are interacting with the site each month.

>>> The app is free to download.



 Here are just a few of the images which caught our eye this month, a big thank you to everyone who is sharing.
