Silver Medal for Cucina Chef in Culinary World Cup

Education catering expert Cucina Restaurants Ltd. is celebrating with chef Andy Wilcock after a silver medal win for Andy in Europe in the Culinary World Cup. Andy was chosen to represent Britain as he was a semi-finalist in the 2010 National Chef of Year competition. He was asked to represent the Culinary Academy as part of the Craft Guild of Chefs from England, with a trip to Luxembourg to compete with chefs from all over the World, including as far away as Singapore & the USA.

Andy who looks after Cucina’s catering contract at Teddington School, had a battle on his hands to compete. He said;
Everything went wrong, from having no minibus and having to drive my car all the way to Luxembourg, the hotel not being ready so sleeping in the car, working nearly 72 hrs without sleeping and having our van key snap in the lock so towed on and off the ferry to name but a few incidents, but I can safely say its been one of the best experiences of my life!”

Steve Quinn, Managing Director and Owner of Cucina, added:
“We wanted to make it possible for Andy to go to the Culinary World Cup because it is important our chefs compete with the best. Students in schools and colleges are often even more demanding than clients in top Michelin restaurants because they have to eat in the same place every day.

We are so proud of Andy and his Silver Medal win!”
