Whether you're looking for a practical demonstration of modern culinary techniques and ingredients, or help to develop your menus or a new product range, our chefs have years of experience at the highest level of the industry.
We are proud to be working with an ever-growing number of further education colleges around the UK as part of our MSK Academies programme, where we offer inspirational days for both catering students and chef lecturers.
MSK Development Day - Modern techniques in plant based and allergen free cooking
The day will feature a range of practical demonstrations using ingredients and techniques to create fine modern cuisine using plant-based ingredients and allergen alternatives.
The contents can be adjusted to accommodate the range of experience and interests of those attending on the day, but will typically cover:
Gelling: alternatives to gelatine for different applications
Egg-free Baking: replicating the various functions of an egg using different ingredients and techniques
Whipping & Foaming: Alternatives to egg-whites
Stabilisation & Emulsification: Alternatives to egg yolks
Plant-Based binders: for better burgers, sausages and similar.
Recipes and follow up technical support
There will be plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss techniques so that you can leave with some practical ideas which can be put into practice straight away, and we are always happy to take calls from our customers to offer advice and solve technical challenges as you continue to develop your skills and understanding.
The demo takes place in our purpose-built Demonstration Kitchen and will be presented by one of our development chefs, Vicky Endersen and Rupert Rowley. Numbers in this demonstration will be kept low in order to ensure that we can offer a safe environment for our guests. The demo starts at 10am and finishes around 4pm although the smaller numbers will allow for flexibility around the finish time and the topics covered. The kitchen will be open from 9:30 and refreshments will be available on arrival and throughout the day. Lunch will be provided – please advise if you have any specific dietary requests.
We are located just to the south of Sheffield, 10 mins from J29 on the M1 and 5 mins by taxi from Chesterfield railway station.
