Fresh from the Michelin Star announcements, Birmingham’s best chefs gathered on Tuesday 2 October and Wednesday 3 October to commemorate 25 years of Simpsons – the restaurant credited for raising the bar of the region’s culinary scene.

All but one of The Midland’s Michelin star holders (Paul Foster from the recently awarded Salt was unable to attend) was cooking or dining over a two night celebration.
