Peter's Food Service has signed up celebrity chefs Marco Pierre White and John Benson Smith to ­upgrade its recipes for ­footie fans.

The pie and pastry maker has signed an exclusive partnership with the pair at Manchester City's Blue Moon Cafe to trial recipe ideas as it looks to double its stadia business in 2011. In the past few months it has signed partnerships with Wembley, Reading FC, Middlesbrough FC and Manchester City.

"We've rapidly developed as the market leader in sports stadia with some 40 professional clubs and we're determined to ­revolutionise the match day food experience ­wherever we are," said Peter's Food Service ­managing director Neil Court-Johnston.

"John will develop a football pie in the coming weeks that will be a true game changer."
