Band to play at culinary final

Have your say

SHEFFIELD-based The England Band are to swap football stadiums for one of the world’s most prestigious culinary competitions, the Bocuse d’Or, in Lyon.

Six band members, led by John Hemmingham, will join chefs and restaurateur friends to cheer on chef and Team UK candidate Adam Bennett as he cooks for the chance to win the esteemed Bocuse d’Or Trophy.

Bennett, head chef at Simpsons in Edgbaston, secured his place after winning the meat prize in the European final last March.
