21st Sep 2023 - 07:00
2023 SCOTY winner Raheem Morgan
The Public Sector Catering Expo, which is taking place on 31st October to 1st November at the NAEC Stoneleigh in Warwickshire, will feature cookery demonstrations from current LACA School Chef of the Year (SCOTY) Raheem Morgan, Kath Breckon from Unilever and the 2023 NACC Care Chef of the Year winner.

The two-day event aims to bring together chefs and caterers from across the public sector who help to feed the nation healthy, nutritious and sustainable food.

The Public Sector Catering Expo will include an exhibition of over 100 suppliers as well as a lively speaker programme featuring Professor Tim Spector and Gregg Wallace. The Expo is free-to-attend to those working within a public sector catering environment.

Raheem Morgan won LACA’s School Chef of the Year (SCOTY) competition at the fourth attempt after a cook-off at the Main Event.

He cooked an Asian crispy fishcake with edamame bean and miso puree, served with a wasabi mayonnaise and crispy garnish. His dessert was a deconstructed lemon cheesecake with apple and basil gel, apple crisp, cherry compote and egg white meringue.

Earlier this year Kath Breckon joined Knorr Professional Bouillons as a brand ambassador for Education, helping to ‘inspire’ school caterers across the UK with her extensive knowledge and experience from over 30 years of working in school kitchens. In 2016 she was crowned LACA School Chef of the Year.

The winner of the NACC Care Chef of the Year competition, which will be announced at the NACC Conference in October, will also give a cooking demonstration for attendees. The combined food cost for both courses should be no more than £3.50 per head based on three portions and it must be nutritionally balanced.  

The event is unique because it brings together buyers, decision makers and influencers from across the entire industry. Attendees will be from a variety of sectors including schools, hospitals, care homes, universities, prisons, the armed forces and catering colleges.
