Mark Morris, Managing Director of The Staff Canteen, said “We’re always glad to bring The Staff Canteen Live to ScotHot to showcase the unique talents that make Scottish cuisine great, and bring their knowledge and expertise to the public.

“The interactive, informal nature of these demonstrations means guests can gain a personal first-hand experience of what it takes to create a Michelin starred meal, and take that unique knowledge back to their own kitchens.”

Toby Wand, Managing Director of 365 Events, the team behind ScotHot23, said: “The live demonstrations and conversations with chefs with Staff Canteen at ScotHot have historically been one of the best opportunities to gain access to the biggest names in the business and get a glimpse at how they approach their craft. This year’s programme is set to be one of the best yet.”
