    Chef Partnership shows the Value of Teamwork at Salon Culinaire Challenge
    21 Jan 2015

    The winners of Essential Cuisine’s ‘Teamwork in the Kitchen Challenge’ – held on Tuesday 20th January at Birmingham’s Hospitality Show, have been revealed.

    Chef pairing, Nathan Gallagher, 21 and Fred Wilson, 26 from Colette’s Restaurant at The Grove Hotel, Hertfordshire, mastered the Stock People’s Salon Culinaire challenge, with their junior/senior partnership proving irresistible in using Essential Cuisine products to create three main courses – fish, meat and vegetarian – against the clock.

    In the wake of their win, the pair commented “It’s an honour to win, we’re really chuffed, and a little surprised.”

    Nathan added “The most important thing in a kitchen is teamwork, you’ve got to get on with everyone, and if one person goes down on a station, you’ve got to make sure the others can carry on.”

    The pair’s meat dish consisted of Venison with roasted parsnips and Brussel sprouts, mixed with Game GlaceSignature Beef Jus, and Signature Chicken Stock Reduction.

    Next, Nathan and Fred created a fish dish of Cod with Cauliflower puree, using Lobster Glace and Fish Stock.

    And finally, the duo’s vegetarian main course was mushroom tortellini with a butternut squash puree, taking advantage of Essential Cuisine’s Wild Mushroom GlaceVegetable Mirepoix Glace, and Mushroom Stock.

    The award was presented to the pair on Tuesday afternoon by managing director Nigel Crane. He commented: “Fred and Nathan’s partnership had all the hallmarks of those factors that make good teams great: communication, coolness under pressure and cooking to truly set them apart from the pack – congratulations to them both.”
