Michelin Masterclass

Two Michelin-starred Chef, Daniel Clifford, is our Creative Director & he delivers ‘Michelin Masterclasses’ at his restaurant for our head chefs.

Daniel is Chef Patron of Midsummer House in Cambridge which holds two Michelin stars & five AA Rosettes. As part of our School of Know How training, our leading chefs receive first-hand experience of working in one of the best restaurants in the UK.

They get to work in the Midsummer kitchen so that they can experience ‘Michelin life’ & gain an insight into what it takes to win two Michelin stars & what details they can instil in their teams at their units.

“It’s hard work, but I absolutely loved every minute of it!”

Andy Wood
KUDOS Head Chef at Northampton Saints

The Michelin Masterclasses are wonderful training platforms which bring the best out of our teams whilst ensuring our partners & clients reap the benefits.
