In late October the English National Culinary team travelled to the Messe Erfurt in Germany to compete in the Culinary Olympics. The quadrennial event brings together over 2,000 professional chefs who compete in various categories to battle it out to win gold. The main sponsor of the four day event, World Association of Chefs, supports 30 national teams, as well as 20 junior national teams who take part in the event.

Simon Webb was captain of the English Senior Team along with longstanding Clifton Food Range supporter Nick Vadis, who guided the team to victory to bring home ‘gold’ in the Restaurant of Nations category. The team also won bronze in the international buffet category.

The English Junior Team also succeeded by winning gold in the international buffet category and bronze in the Restaurants of Nations event.

Clifton Food Range supported the team with equipment during the competition. We are very proud to be able to support such talented and inspiring chefs. Congratulations to Nick, Simon and the rest of the team on their win!

It’s beginning to look a lot like (an orange) Christmas!

It’s December and there’s not a lot of time left until one of the biggest (and busiest) days on the international holiday calendar.

If you haven’t finalised your Christmas list yet, then you should add the high quality and durable Clifton Food Range carry case to it! The easiest and most secure way to store your immersion circulator when not in use or when in transit!

The British made Clifton carry case is extremely sturdy and has a double clamp fastening system attached to the lid to ensure that the stirrer is secure in the case. The carry case has also been designed in Clifton signature orange and comes complete with protective foam inside to specifically fit your immersion circulator, power lead and plating tweezers and accessories.
