The KP of the Year competition organised by The Caterer in partnership with Winterhalter is now in its third year but this year Winterhalter has upped the ante.
"It's time to give KPs the recognition and respect they deserve," said Stephen Kinkead, managing director of Winterhalter UK. "A day in their honour is a way to highlight the fantastic work they do."
Chef Brian Turner, who fully supports the competition and recognition for the role, said: "I have been known to say, if a chef fights with a kitchen porter, one of them will have to go - and it probably won't be the kitchen porter."
