The organisers say the Open Kitchen event will offer a unique hands-on experience, with ticket holders in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Dundee and Peterhead put through their paces to see if they can master the art of hand-breading, handle the heat of the frying and work at pace to build their own KFC burger.

You can find the full list of Scottish restaurants taking part here.

After all that hard work, each attendee will be rewarded with the chance to devour their own burger creation, along with a piece of Original Recipe Chicken, fries, drink and a side.

They will also be given an exclusive KFC branded apron and hat.

Rob Swain, chief operations officer at KFC UK & Ireland, said: “We’re really proud of the food we serve, and of all the care that goes into making our chicken taste as incredible as it does.

"We want to welcome everyone in to give them the chance to see what makes it so finger lickin’ good, and invite them to try keeping pace with our amazing team members. We can’t wait to show the nation how it’s done.”

Tickets for KFC Open Kitchen cost £5 and are allocated on a first come first served basis, so grab yours quick and apply here:
