SIRHA GREEN AGORA: PACKED WITH ANIMATIONS AND EVENTS
The ‘Talks’ – a series of roundtables for and by professionals: ‘sourcing locally vs via a distributor’, ‘recycling biowaste’, ‘what equipment for my kitchen?’, ‘who are the new eaters?’ … are some the themes that will addressed (approximately fifteen) by more than 40 expert contributors. These 45-minute exchanges between professionals are designed to promote product innovations and highlight best practices for chefs. A famous chef and top representatives of the Food Service industry will also take part in these conferences that will be held as a series of roundtables.
‘When the chefs speak to the chefs’ or the art of culinary demonstrations: throughout the trade show the Agora Green area will stage a series of inspiring and instructive culinary demonstrations. Chefs who are already engaged in the responsible food approach and contribute to different Sirha events will present their creations: a vegetal dish by a chef from the Bocuse d’Or family (former winners or members of Team France); a local creation by a chef from the Omnivore network; a classic dish revisited by a reputed starred chef and a demonstration featuring a sustainable dessert presented by a pastry chef from the Coupe du Monde de la Pâtisserie family. A fully outfitted Green Kitchen will be available to the chefs on this occasion.
Green kitchen, a fully outfitted kitchen: the demonstrations will be delivered in a professional kitchen arranged and fully outfitted with the latest appliances in line with recent environmental standards. Installed in partnership with CINOV Restauconcepteurs® – professional association specialised in food and hospitality engineering – the Green Kitchen will boast low energy consumption thus proving that sustainable kitchen can also be profitable.
