The British Culinary Federation Team won an outstanding 35 medals in the recent World Culinary Olympics, held in Erfurt, Germany in October. Using Clifton Food Range® water baths, the Senior Team led by Simon Hulstone, of the Elephant Restaurant in Torquay, put on an inspired performance and won 25 silver medals in the prestigious competition.
Meanwhile, the Junior British Culinary Olympic Team scooped an impressive 5 silver and 5 bronze medals. The final total of 35 medals makes them the highest performing team from the UK.
Having been approached by Mark Hill, Executive Chef at the House of Commons and a senior member of the British Culinary Federation Team, Clifton Food Range® lent the British Team 2 water baths – 1 x 28 litre single unstirred water bath and an 8 x 8 litre unstirred Duobath™ – for the competition. Perfect for sous vide and low temperature cooking, the Clifton Food Range water baths were used for both the starter of salmon cannelloni and the main course of slow poached venison.
Managing Director Melvin Dickson says: “All of us at Clifton Food Range® are very proud of all the members of the British Culinary Federation Team and delighted with this achievement. They are flying the flag for British Culinary talent.”
