How is it the middle of June already?

Just for you, we've curated our best content from the past month; we hope you enjoy it!. 

 Eventful as always, the past thirty days have seen some exciting events: we found out that Tom Kerridge is planning to launch a restaurant at the Stock Exchange Hotel in Manchester, Michelin-star Hedone closed its doors after eight years, as did Jason Atherton's Social Wine and Tapas

We hosted another networking lunch at Luke French's Sheffield restaurant, Jörofollow that link to find out what happened and to watch a round-up video of the event. If you'd like to attend our next networking lunch at The Westbury in Mayfair, fill in this form.

We also went to Farnborough College for a TSCLive College Tour yesterday - joined by The Coach head chef Tom de Keyser, Western Europe at gategroup executive chef Matt Pickop, two-times GBM contestant and Allbright chef Sabrina Gidda and The Vineyard sous-chef Alex Payne, to spread the word that hospitality is an amazing sector to work in.
