Michelin-starred chef Aktar Islam & Masterchef's Philli Armitage-Mattin Grilled by The Staff Canteen

Michelin-starred chef Aktar Islam & Masterchef's Philli Armitage-Mattin talk bullying on social media, a fear of fruit and the rise of restaurant boxes.

This is the first episode co-hosted by Michelin-starred chef Aktar Islam from Opheem in Birmingham. He has invited six exciting guests to join him and Cara Houchen, Editor of The Staff Canteen, each week.

Our guest on this episode is Masterchef: The Professionals finalist, Philli Armitage-Mattin. Join us as we talk about a fear of fruit in its raw form, the impact social media bullying can have on a person and why both chefs have jumped on board the rise of the restaurant box.
