Event description
The annual Ken Hom Lecture from the Oxford Cultural Collective, in partnership with Lee Kum Kee, Asia House and PB Catering

About this Event

Join Chef Ken Hom OBE; Asma Khan, Proprietor, Darjeeling Express; John Guthrie, Policy Director of UK Hospitality; and XueFeng Bai, UK Director of Din Tai Fung, to address the skills crisis in the UK Asian restaurant sector.

For Chef Ken Hom, Asian food is an important and defining part of the UK’s rich and diverse culinary culture: “The British love Asian food and they have access to the very best available outside of Asia. Those of us with a professional interest must work together to support young chefs, encourage innovation, and ensure that the Asian restaurant sector continues to flourish and grow.”

In this session, panellists will consider the future of the Asian restaurant sector in the UK. As the hospitality industry faces a growing skills crisis, exacerbated by constitutional upheaval and changes in patterns of migration, will the Asian restaurant sector have the resilience required to thrive? What creative solutions can be used to source, recruit and retain appropriately skilled staff who will secure the sector’s future?
