Simon will be ‘in conversation’, with Samme Allen, chair of the CHS Awards, who will lead a Q & A session taking questions from the floor, where delegates will get the chance to meet him and ask about his career as a talented chef and owner of fourteen restaurants in the Northwest and Dubai. Simon admits his passion for food began as a restaurateur and continues to cook in the restaurants every week, which he enjoys immensely as it also keeps him in touch with changing culinary trends.
Samme will be asking Simon to provide an insight into his experiences on and off screen and share with the audience how he keeps up to date with emerging trends whilst juggling several busy roles.
