Salon Culinaire 2017

Time 348 days ago Comments 0 comments

This year’s Salon Culinaire returns to Ascot Racecourse on 27 September with guest judges, chef demonstrations, a supplier exhibition, a street food market, as well as new and exciting categories to enter.

The supplier exhibition and street food village will be bigger and better than ever, including a welcome return for new and small start-up businesses with exciting ideas to take back to your sites.

The annual Salon programme, which includes events in England, Ireland and Scotland, has become one of the largest culinary competitions in the UK. Competing is a great way to develop skills, gain recognition and is a very real example of how Sodexo invests it its people. And you don’t have to be a chef to enter! There are lots of static categories to enter too, so if you’re a budding baker then why not get involved? 

Managers have access to a brochure with full details of all the categories and how to enter, via Sodexo_Net. Talk to your line manager if you want to know more. 

As well as the England event, Salons will also take place in Ireland and Scotland:

  • Ireland: 7 September at Cliff at Lyons, Co. Kildare
  • Scotland: 14 September at Hampden Park, Glasgow
  • England:  27 September at Ascot Racecourse, Ascot, Berkshire
