We take a look back at the Restaurant Show 2009, for a taste of what you can expect at this year's event
Last year's Restaurant Show saw thousands of exhibitors, restaurateurs and chefs descend upon Earls Court 2 in London to meet new contacts, gain business advice and enjoy cooking demonstrations from a line-up of top chefs.
Opened last year by Ferran Adria, The Restaurant Show saw Nic Watt of Roka, Michael Caines, and Vivek Singh demonstrate their cooking skills, while the Spanish chef himself participated in a live interview on the show's Centre Stage.
This year legendary chef Albert Roux will open the show , and will appear onstage in a live interview with Restaurant magazine editor William Drew. Also featuring this year will be Ashley Palmer-Watts of Dinner by Heston Blumenthal; Claude Bosi of Hibiscus; and Massimo Bottura of Osteria Francescana.
