Direct Seafoods, suppliers of fresh fish and seafood to caterers throughout the UK and Ireland; will be exhibiting at the Craft Guild of Chefs’ Universal Cookery and Food Festival, UCFF, on the 23rd September 2015. Direct Seafoods will be supported by other specialist fresh food businesses from the Bidvest Fresh Group.
Oliver Kay Produce’s Development Chef Laurence Tottingham, will be on-stand showcasing a wide range of fresh and seasonal produce along with fresh fish, meat and dairy from the Bidvest Fresh companies, via a series of food tastings and live skills demonstrations. Laurence’s experience includes a tenure with Heston Blumenthal at the iconic Fat Duck and Hinds Head restaurants, before going on to set up the award winning ‘Aumbry’ restaurant with renowned chef Mary Ellen Mctague.
Laurence comments; “UCFF offers a fantastic opportunity to showcase seasonality and provenance of the extensive variety of fresh products available from Bidvest Fresh’s businesses . We look forward to sharing some fantastic food throughout the day with such a respected group of industry peers.”
Laurence is being joined on-stand by Laky Zervudachi, Direct Seafoods Director of Sustainability, who will be available to discuss the important issue of sustainability within the seafood industry, as well as representatives from Careilian Caviar, who will be providing delegates with luxurious tasting opportunities later in the day.
UCFF, which this year takes up residence at Vallum Farm, Northumberland, is dubbed the ‘Glastonbury for Chefs’ and delivers provenance, sustainability, trends, seasonality and development education for attending chefs and caterers from across the UK.
