SMART KITCHENS

‘Smart’ kitchens will transform efficiency and productivity during food preparation. But we discover whether the end result is going to make the grade in a busy kitchen, under the stewardship of some of the world’s finest chefs. 

Over three days our chefs demonstrate the preparation of various dishes – the traditional way, vs the ‘smart’ way.
