Hospitality trade exhibition, Northern Restaurant & Bar 2019 (NRB19), has revealed the line-up for this year’s Chef Live theatre, including Michelin-starred Michael Wignall and Shaun Rankin.

Taking place at the Manchester Central Convention Complex (19-20 March), this year’s event will see chefs Mark Birchall, Michael Wignall, Mary Ellen McTague, Shaun Rankin and Tom Parker take to the stage to prepare their signature dishes and share their secrets and tips.

NRB chief executive Thom Hetherington said: “I’m so proud of the line-up for NRB this year.

“The north of England boasts an unprecedented proportion of the UK’s best restaurants, and I think that has enabled us to pull together a set of chefs who are not only exceptional but represent all that is exciting, contemporary and relevant about cooking in the region.

“There are so many of my personal favourite (chefs) at NRB19, and I am sure our industry visitors will feel the same.

“I suspect spots at our exclusive Chef’s Table, where fellow chefs and food writers get to sit alongside their cooking idols as they work and taste the finished dishes, will be in huge demand this year.”

With two places at the Chef’s Table up for grabs, NRB is encouraging attendees to enter the competition online by 8 March via
