Venues of Excellence hosted its annual culinary competition ‘The Cook and Serve Challenge’ on 29th October, with record entrants in the longstanding competition.

The competition, between teams from the venue consortium’s members, is now in its 18th year and showcases the very best aspiring talent within the catering teams. The competition asks entrants to prepare and serve a three course meal, suitable for an end of conference banquet, and accompanied by cocktails, appropriate wines and coffee. 

With a record entry of 14 teams this year, the standard was extremely high and after much delicious deliberation, the panel of industry expert judges decided on the winners.The 12 professional judges were unanimous in praising the skills and innovation of all the competitors, and they all commented on how the standards had once again risen, with all the chefs and waiters displaying very high levels of professionalism. The 28 amateur judges who acted as our customers and sampled the food, cocktails and wines served by the competitors were equally impressed with what they received.
