Is your kitchen a well-oiled machine turning out plates to be proud of? Does your team possess serious chemistry? Essential Cuisine is on a nationwide hunt to uncover and reward the UK’s hardest working chef teams; Britain’s Best Brigades.
Launched at January’s Hospitality Show, we are recruiting kitchens to represent and do battle in eight regions across the UK – London, the South East, the South West, the Midlands, the North East, the North West & Northern Ireland, Wales and Scotland.
Nigel Crane, Managing Director, said: “Camaraderie, skill, commitment and a tireless work ethic; these are just some of the qualities that make good brigades great, and we want to uncover the best. It doesn’t matter which sector you work in, tell us why your kitchen should be considered and you could be chosen to represent your region.”
Getting involved couldn’t be simpler. Entrants need to go www.bestbrigades.com/enter and leave a few details about them and their team. From there, entries will be judged on a number of key criteria by a very special panel including chef patron of Liverpool’s Hope Street Hotel, Paul Askew and Executive Chef at London’s Park Lane Sheraton, Andrew Bennett MBE, before eight regional finalists are chosen.00:0000:0000:58
Finalists will then be required to create a simple 30-60 second video that perfectly sums up their kitchen philosophy. The videos will go to a public vote on Essential Cuisine’s Facebook page with the triumphant team scooping £1000 in cash plus an exclusive menu development masterclass. Runners-up in each region will receive £300 towards a team night on the tiles.
Nigel adds: “For the video round, we want these kitchen teams to capture the spirit that keeps them ticking. Let’s be under no illusion, we’re not looking for the next Spielberg, more the characters, camaraderie and the cooking skill. Regional pride is at stake, I urge kitchens with serious chemistry and the will to win to get involved, stand up and be counted.”
