The Chefs’ Forum at Ballihoo
This week our Head Chef, Rod McCormick, hosted the Chefs’ Forum’s latest monthly event in our tasting kitchen at Ballihoo Club in Somerford Keynes. Rod ran a fantastic event demonstrating his skills to a number of trainee chefs and catering professionals from around the UK.
Press Release Summary by the Chefs’ Forum – “Top chefs from Cotswolds and Bath gathered at the beautiful Lower Mill Estate. Students from Gloucestershire College joined our Executive Chef Rod McCormick in The Ballihoo Clubhouse and Restaurant to create mouth-watering canapés for the chefs and local hospitality employers who attended. Rod McCormick showcased his menu to his peers in a celebration of seasonal local produce and Cotswolds provenance through canapés and a cookery demo powered by an Induced Energy invisible induction hob. This event was a great example of Gloucestershire College working seamlessly with local employers ahead of the launch of The Chefs’ Forum Academy this January at the college.” – View Full Press Release
