Catering equipment exhibitors and visitors attending this month’s Hospitality Show will have the opportunity hear one of the country’s most well-known celebrity chefs, Antony Worrall Thompson, share his views on the industry.
Organisers Fresh Montgomery have confirmed that Worrall Thompson has agreed to give a “no-holds-barred” interview on the pleasures and pitfalls of the hospitality industry.
The interview will take place in front of a live audience on Monday 21st January at 2pm on the Design Inspiration Stage where the chef, restaurateur and household name will talk openly about celebrity, the highs and lows of running restaurants, and facing the future with optimism.
Worrall Thompson began his career at Brinkley’s Restaurant in London, where he went from sous chef to head chef within a month. He currently has two restaurants and a pub: the Windsor Grill and Kew Grill and The Greyhound in Rotherfield Peppard just outside Henley-on-Thames, Oxfordshire.
Toby Wand, managing director of Fresh Montgomery, said: “We’re delighted to have Antony at the show. He was one of our very first celebrity chefs and not many people have done more to make cooking accessible to the masses than him. With a long and decorated history in the industry, he truly is a fascinating character. The knowledge and experience that he can impart will be invaluable to show visitors, as he has seen and done it all.”
Wand said the 45-minute interview will “leave no stone unturned”.
