Chef’s Club Lunch

Peninsular restaurant at the Intercontinental, London, The O2, which offers dramatic views
across the Greenwich peninsular and Canary Wharf welcomed the BCF Chefs’ Club Lunch on
Monday 26 th February.

Executive Chef, Tomas Lidakevicius, came out to explain each course; our sincere thanks to
him and his brigade for a superb 5-course lunch and excellent canapés. It was very obvious
to all those present that the Chef has gone to a lot of trouble to create this very special
menu for the BCF. Vice-Chairman Stuart McLeod welcomed everyone and acknowledged
the brigade and the front-of- house team in the Santé de Chef. He thanked members for
attending and the fact that it was good to see some new faces.
