Award Winning Chef Joins Brakes Ireland CATEX Line Up

05/02/2015

Brakes has secured the former head chef of the world-famous Corrigan’s restaurant in London to host a culinary masterclass at CATEX 2015.


Chris McGowan, star of TV show Great British Menu and former Head Chef & Culinary Director at Lindsay House and at Corrigan’s Mayfair in London, will host a range of cookery demonstrations at the Brakes stand at CATEX, held at the RDS in Dublin from 17-19th February.


Chris will be in attendance at the Brakes CATEX stand, located at N1 – 28, and will put his world class skills on show at 12pm, 1pm and 4pm. Chris will be demonstrating some of his favourite dishes to visitors at the show using the finest local ingredients supplied by Brakes.

Joining Chris at the event with Brakes will be a number of the company’s local suppliers including Keenan’s Seafood, Robinson Meats, Readychef, Manor Farm and Morelli’s Ice Cream.

CATEX attracts some of Ireland’s leading figures from the foodservice and hospitality industries and Brakes will use its substantial presence at the event to showcase some of the local produce it sourced alongside their innovative award winning own brand range.


Chris McGowan said: “Ireland has some of the most fantastic produce available anywhere in the world and I can’t wait to work with the team at Brakes for what I’m sure will be a really successful CATEX for all involved.”


Speaking ahead of the event, Brakes Ireland Sales Director Gareth Clements added: “This year, our CATEX experience will be bigger and better than ever and we’re really looking forward to welcoming Chris to our stand, alongside our local suppliers.”


“CATEX is the first big event that Brakes will be involved with this year, but not the last. After a fantastic 2014, we’re hoping to grow the business further in 2015 and industry events like this offer a great way to show the marketplace our first class produce, prepared and cooked by one of the UK & Ireland’s top chefs – we’re really looking forward to it.”


As well as Chris’ masterclasses, Robinson’s Meats, Readychef and Keenan’s Seafood and Unilever Ireland will also show off their culinary skills.


As well as seeing leading chefs and food producers apply their cooking skills, CATEX attendees will also have the chance to sample tasters from a wide range of locally sourced and Brakes own brand products. CATEX 2015 takes place at Dublin’s RDS from 17th – 19th February and Brakes can be found at stand N1 – 28.
