Is there an everyday task you’re so good at, if it were made into a
competitive sport, you’re confident you’d walk away with a medal? Like
secretly racing other pedestrians every morning, or turning the
stock-room shelves into an artistic feat of engineering? If you do, the
chances are you keep it quiet.
You might think your quirk makes you a bit, well, unusual,
but we want to tell you that it’s a good thing. It means you push
yourself and celebrate your achievements. Whether it’s a perfectly
brewed cuppa or a satisfyingly efficient filing system, you acknowledge
that victory adds up to something great.
We like to think our people push themselves to achieve great
things every day and we’ve been proved right: the British Culinary
Federation has named the members of the English National Culinary Team
and our very own Eurest Chef, Ben Ford is taking part. Ben is Head Chef
at our River Island kitchen in London and he’ll be competing at the
Culinary World Cup this November at EXPOGAST in Luxembourg:
“I’m delighted to have been selected to join a team of such
superb chefs. It’s a great honour to be representing Eurest, and the
rest of the country.”
To compete, the English National Culinary Team will have to
produce a three-course menu for 110 diners, plus an international
buffet. Ben and the rest of the team are meeting regularly to make sure
that all the dishes prepared for the competition meet the strict
criteria that the judges expect.
At Eurest, we understand that, like every great service
organisation, our success hinges on our people — and it goes without
saying that we’re really proud of Ben and wish him and his team mates
every success in the competition.
