Just last week we had the pleasure of welcoming Allegra Mcevedy into our kitchens.
We all know her as the chef, author, presenter and culinary adventurer from TV; you may also know her to be one of the founding members of the restaurant chain Leon (which we love). Not only was she downright incredible in the kitchen; planing the day meticulously and directing the running of things effortlessly (can you tell she’s our favourite yet?)…but she also brought with her some great happy faces from Pret a Manger‘s office.
The guys were in Kitchen 2 for the day, kicking things off with breakfast and the use of our conference facilities.
Allegra then demonstrated a couple of dishes and invited the Pret a Mangers to divide into teams and try their own hand at cooking up a recipe each.
I can attest to everything looking and smelling just incredible, and it was a real pleasure to host such a bustling yet well organised day of food.
