Two of the UK’s top chefs will join Barnsley-based SushiSushi when it exhibits at a national food show this Autumn.
The Japanese and Asian food supplier (director Stuart Turner pictured) will exhibit at The Restaurant Show from 2 – 4 October at Olympia, London.
The team will be joined by Liam Watton, head chef at House of the Rising Sun in Shrewsbury and Jon Green, head chef at Tattu Restaurant and Bar in Manchester.
Show delegates are invited to SushiSushi’s stand (UP60) to find out how to innovate and elevate their dishes with SushiSushi’s Japanese produce. SushiSushi will showcase its latest products including fresh yuzu, liquid dashi and shio koji.
Now in its 29th year, The Restaurant Show is a trade event catering to those owning, operating and working in restaurants, hotels, catering companies and leisure establishments across the UK.
Stuart Turner, director at SushiSushi, said: “This will be our third time at the show which has always proved a great success for us. This year we wanted to do something different that would catch people’s attention, so we decided to invite some of our friends to join us on the stand to cook live.
“Each chef will offer their expert advice to visitors to our stand and show them how to innovate their menus using some of our products including, miso, bonito, real wasabi, sauces and sakes.
“Exhibiting at The Restaurant Show gives us a platform to establish ourselves as ‘The Japanese food experts in the UK’. We typically work with Japanese and Asian restaurants, but regularly work with fine dining restaurants to meet their requirements to supply quality, innovative Japanese produce.”
Liam Watton, who will cook up yakitori sauce marinated confit pork belly with a koji scallop, said: “I agreed to cook on the SushiSushi stand because I love working with these guys. They’re always coming up with new ideas, concepts and ingredients and I’m really excited to showcase what can be done with their produce.”
SushiSushi, based in Mapplewell, stocks a range of products sold to restaurants, chefs, retailers and cooking enthusiasts across Europe and the rest of the world, with clients including Great British Menu judge Michael O’Hare and MasterChef runner up Andrew Kojima.
