This latest podcast showcases the latest activity as part of the #MakeitSteak campaign. Find out about the new initiative involving football and steaks in a fun competition to get people inspired by cooking prime steaks at home.
Join AHDB's John Bates as he chats to Karl Pendlebury, AHDB's Senior Manager (Quality Schemes) and the chefs Hampden Parks Executive Head Chef Colin Dempsey, Sous Chef Stephen Hampson as well as Harry Lomas MBE, Executive Head Chef at Wembley about the steak dishes they have chosen to cook to win the support of voters in this ‘bit of fun’ competition.
We Brits love to talk about three things – the weather, footie and food.
In this podcast we hear how chefs from England’s Wembley and Scotland’s home stadium, Hampden Park are playing the game in support of beef farmers and butchers, oh and there’s a bit about the weather too!
Scotland v England the #MakeitSteak match is due to be played-out on social media Friday 5 June 2020 at 7pm.
The beautiful game has not escaped the pandemic but the easing of lockdown means football matches and other team sports are due to return soon albeit played behind closed doors without crowds of supporters.
The chefs speak about the importance of great produce and the huge efforts behind the scenes to produce high end and top-quality food and hospitality on match days as well as for functions and events throughout the year.
AHDB’s Karl Pendlebury explains why this social media based competition was created and how the food service sector is a powerhouse driving sales of British produce.
