The primary aim of this 3 day event is to provide Caterers, Chefs and Stewards of all three services with a competition that further develops their culinary skills, nurtures pride in professional achievement and builds team spirit for the ultimate benefit of the Armed Forces as a whole. Why not make a point of attending at least one of these days but it is worth noting that Thursday 12th October is themed as the "Army Day".The centre will be open from 0800 until 1700 each day and you will have the opportunity to watch chefs and stewards of the British Armed Forces compete in a variety of individual and team live classes in the Practical Cookery Theatre. At the same time there will be the Inter-Services Open Field Cookery Challenge, a static Culinary Salon display, a programme of seminars and much more. You will also be able to meet around 50 exhibitors of equipment or food and drink, plus representatives of the ACC Association Executive Council will be there to answer questions and recruit as many of the caterers into the Association.A full description of the event, details of the programme, directions to the location and the process required to gain entry to the security controlled establishment can be found in the Visitors Guide.
