ScotHot will take place at the SECC on March 4 and 5, with the finals of both the Scottish Culinary Championships and the UK Barista Championship taking place at the show.
In both cases the finalists will compete in front of a live audience.
The 20 competitors in the Barista Championship – which last took place at ScotHot in 2009 – will have 15 minutes to set up their work areas on stage, and then another 15 minutes to make four espressos, four cappuccinos and four espresso-based non-alcoholic drinks.
The winner of the final will be selected by a panel of judges and will earn the opportunity to compete at the World Barista Championships in the United States in April.
The 30th Scottish Culinary Championships, meanwhile, will challenge chefs to create food ‘sculptures’, before competing in a live cook-off against each other on the hospitality show’s main stage. ScotHot also attracts a wide range of quality exhibitors.
