The Yes Chef! Project is supported by Tennent’s Training Academy,, Kained Holdings and some of Scotlands top chefs, as well as ourselves, Foodie Explorers.

The aspiring professional chefs will learn the skills necessary to make it in the kitchen.  At the end of their training programme,  they will serve up a six-course tasting menu for the audience of over 500 guests!
