St Austell Brewery will host a special culinary event in Fowey this month to share skills and experience with the county’s up and coming young chefs and hospitality stars of the future.
Chef Craft will take place on the quayside in Fowey from 10am on June 28. The day-long event will be led by Nick Hemming, catering development manager for St Austell Brewery, and celebrity chef James Strawbridge.
The masterclass will be open to young people already working in the industry who are interested in developing their skills as well as those keen to find out more about career opportunities in the catering trade.
Throughout the day, Hemming and Strawbridge will be running demonstrations and workshops to highlight a variety of skills and techniques, with a specific focus on grill cooking and successful beer and food matching, which will be a feature at Havener’s, the brewery’s new restaurant opening in Fowey next month.
Strawbridge, of Hungry Sailors and Saturday Farm fame, has been working with St Austell Brewery to develop Havener’s Bar and Grill, based on Town Quay in the heart of Fowey. He will be the executive head chef at the new restaurant, which will offer a seafood-led menu in an informal, setting enjoying one of the best waterside locations in the region.
Hemming, catering development manager for St Austell Brewery, said: “Young people looking at careers today have a host of industries vying for their attention.
“Chef Craft is a chance for people considering catering and hospitality as an option, and for those already working in the industry who are keen to progress, to spend time with some great chefs in a relaxed environment and find out more about opportunities with companies like St Austell Brewery which is developing new sites like Havener’s.”
