Birmingham-born chef Brad, who has appeared on television’s Saturday Kitchen, will be demonstrating the culinary skills that earned him a prestigious Michelin Star in 2016 at Carters of Moseley.

On Friday and Saturday night, Brad will be grilling and smoking a variety of meat, seafood and other seasonal ingredients using two specially created grills.

The ingredient-led menu has been carefully designed to pair perfectly with beers from two of his favourite breweries, The Kernel and Braybrooke.
