Kitchen planners and designers are among the constituents invited to attend The Chefs’ Forum latest ‘Future of Hospital Kitchens’ virtual seminar, in partnership with Rational.
The upcoming event will be staged on Zoom on 20 October to update delegates on progress made since the first seminar 6 months ago.
The initial online webinar provided an opportunity to learn about the NHS hospital food review and those involved in bringing about positive change in hospital menus for patients and food offers for visitors.
Subsequently, the new session will report on the changing landscape of hospital catering as a result. Chair of the NHS Hospital Food review, Philip Shelley will join a group of hospital catering and nutrition experts to get to the heart of matters affecting the sector today.
A combination of new technology, new hospitals and new hospital kitchen thinking has changed the way food will be served to those in and visiting hospitals for many years to come.
The latest event is aimed at being a meeting of minds of industry leaders to create hives of talent and new thinking within the sector. To this end, The Chefs’ Forum has assembled a key panel of experts to address every conceivable detail over two hours.
The event will be hosted by The Chefs’ Forum’s founder, Catherine Farinha, and director of education, Neil Rippington and will explore, among other things:
- Progress report – the NHS Hospital Food Review six months on
- Food to go – the changing landscape
- Hydration and nutrition in hospital menus – new culinary thinking that embraces health
- Staffing tomorrow’s kitchens and training requirements – why it’s so important to enable chefs with the right equipment and space
- Adapting kitchens for the future – key advice
- Hospital culinary talent and why it is winning awards
The seminar is the fifth in a series of sector-specific seminars in association with The Chefs’ Forum to gain market insight to fine-tune Rational’s approach to servicing stakeholders, tailor-made to their individual requirements.
