A key part of Bayleys Plate Up for a Purpose, our celebrity chefs will be guiding our Business Leaders in the kitchen to ensure that what they plate up, will be eaten up.

Under the guidance of three renowned Chefs - Richard Hingston, Reon Hobson and Tony Smith, our Business Leaders will swap their suits for kitchen aprons by preparing dinner for 180 guests. 

Food brings people together, our celebrity chefs will be working hard to bring this event to life.​​​
