Steve Munkley, salon chef director, said: “I’m delighted that International Salon Culinaire is back and live at HRC after a tough two years for the hospitality industry. We will once again be testing the skills, knowledge and creativity of each competitor, from seasoned professionals to some of the most talented junior chefs in the industry. Salon Culinaire is a fantastic avenue for chefs to test their skills against the competition and stand out from the crowd, so get entering!”

Over 70 chefs and hospitality professionals have been confirmed as judges for the competition, including Cyrus Todiwala OBE, Yolande Stanley MBE and HRC chef ambassador Michel Roux Jr.
