High-profile exceptional Master Chefs due to demonstrate at PACE 2012

The Professional Association for Catering Education (PACE) has enlisted the help of three high-profile exceptional Master Chefs – Cyrus Todiwala OBE, Gareth Johns and John Feeney – to inspire and educate delegates at the 2012 PACE Conference and Exhibition on 21-23 March at the Hilton Blackpool.
The three talented chefs will take to the Culinary and Front of House Demonstration Theatres to showcase specific skills and new ideas for the attending catering and education professionals to take back to the classroom, with relevant and motivational masterclasses that reflect curriculum subjects:

High-end Indian Cuisine masterclass presented by the brilliant and highly-acclaimed BBC Saturday Morning Kitchen regular, Cyrus Todiwala OBE. Attendees can expect to discover a fresh and innovative approach to Indian cuisine from the award-winning executive chef and proprietor of the famous Café Spice Namasté.

Food & Wine Pairing masterclass presented by the gifted and award-winning head chef of The Wynnstay Hotel, Gareth Johns, of TV’s Britain’s Best Dish fame. Gareth believes that food and wine matching is a natural extension of cooking. Having won national and international recognition for his work in this field, his masterclass, which will demonstrate how food changes a wine’s flavour profile, is sure to enthuse and inform.

Authentic American BBQ using Sous Vide masterclass presented by innovative and award-winning John Feeney, culinary director Europe of Griffith Laboratories – the FOOD Architects, and molecular gastronomy guru. John’s 26-year career has taken him all over the world and he has experienced and developed a variety of cutting-edge culinary styles, methods and approaches. He will use his expertise and incredible skill in this fascinating session that will show how consistent, authentic results, without spoilage, can be ensured using his long and slow BBQ cooking method.
