About Us

Chef Collab is about a holistic approach to food
and challenging the chef shortage.

Our ethos is to give chefs the opportunity to showcase their skills in an environment supported by a group of like-minded individuals whose sole aim is to enable them to grow and prosper in good working environments.
We bring chefs from all different grades to cook together.

Mentors and prospering chefs are paired together on the night to develop and work on a set course chosen by themselves.
Prior to the night chefs would go to the mentor’s kitchens to learn new techniques or indeed a different style of cooking as all chefs use different techniques.

It is usually five chefs cooking on the night with a five-course menu being served.

The venue varies from month to month and as we sell out weeks in advance it is great to share this and promote local venues whose premises may be otherwise quite on a Monday. The food we serve is at the lowest possible price, the reason for this is to make good food accessible to all. The mentors serve the food on the night and proteges do all the cooking … the hardest but most rewarding part!

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.

We are so delighted in these early stages that we have been inundated with support from chefs, restaurateurs, local suppliers and business owners, we currently have a waiting list of mentors and chefs wanting to participate up until February 2019.

Chef Collab will give our young chefs a chance to network with established individuals in the business hopefully empowering them to have the confidence to express themselves in their craft.
