AFMCP™-UK Food and Drink

Every year we pull out all of the stops to make your culinary experience during the course proceedings somewhat of event in itself. In lectures you’ll be learning the talk, during breaks and lunches, you’ll be well and truly ‘walking the walk!’

We’re delighted to announce this year our menus will be fully curated by Dr Rupy Aujla from The Doctors Kitchen, working closely with Park Plaza Riverbank Head Chef Werner Seebach.

“This year The Doctor’s Kitchen is taking over the canteen to give you  a flavour of what  “functional food” can taste like. Blending the UK’s rich diversity with radically seasonal  food, the food menus will be reflecting the course content  that delegates will be learning during the event. Expect this years AFMCP to feature curries, strifrys and stews from around  the globe as well as firm favourites from previous years including the black bean stew in miso sauce and colourful gobi with coconut rice.”
