Portable Kitchens

I am delighted to offer premium portable cookery theatre demonstration units for all my demonstrations in 2024.

As a professional food demonstrator, I really know how to please a crowd and will happily work to your brief and the overall events theme.

These are available in 1.5m, 2,4m, 4m and trailer kitchens. Units feature a four-ring gas or induction hob, sink, oven and fridge and supplied fully equipped with a top-quality PA system. Optional overhead cameras linked to screens are available and signage is fully brandable if required.

I use a large range of BBQs including Monolith Kamado, Tripod and Tabletop Shichirin. All Health & Safety is taken seriously with all fire safety equipment, and I have a 5-star rating for food hygiene from Bristol City Council.

I’ve worked with lots of talented chefs over the years that can also join me for your forthcoming food festival or cookery demonstration.
