Warwick Conferences Celebrates Culinary Award

Warwick Conferences is celebrating after its culinary team won the best overall menu category in the 19th annual TUCO (The University Caterers’ Organisation) Chefs Skills Challenge.

This is the third successive year that Warwick Conferences (part of the University of Warwick) has taken an award home from the annual competition, which is designed to test and showcase the talents of University chefs.

The team, made up of Greg Crump, Gary Brown and James Queenan - all chefs at Warwick Conferences’ award-winning training and conference centres - were up against strong competition with 17 rival teams also running for the best menu award.

The winning four course menu was constructed using locally sourced, fresh food and included exciting dishes such as Cardamom Cream, Mango Jelly, Cinnamon Apple Samosa & Gingerbread.

Rachael Bartlett, head of sales and marketing at Warwick Conferences said, “We are thrilled and extremely proud of the team for winning the Best Overall Menu at this year’s TUCO challenge.

“The competition was really tough and to impress the judges was no mean feat, especially considering the high calibre of chefs competing.

“Warwick Conferences is passionate about quality and exciting food and we are delighted that this shined through in the winning menu and in the enthusiasm of our team.”
