UK Chefs land second place at ISS' International Culinary Competition

ICC-chefs-464 Peter Lambie and Elliott Faulkner receiving their silver medals at the ICC from Jeff Gravenhorst, ISS Group CEO​
On the 20th March, two chefs from ISS Food Services took part in the 2019 International Culinary Competition (ICC) at the ISS Group head office in Copenhagen and coming away with a fantastic second place
Peter Lambie and Elliott Faulkner, both from our Food Services Business & Industry sector, gave a shining example of UK talent amongst other gifted chefs from around the globe.

The competition required chefs to prepare a main and dessert from a box of mystery ingredients, which they would not see until the start of the contest. For the main the UK team prepared Smoked Red Snapper, Langoustine Bisque, Quinoa with Razor Clams, Charred Shallots, Baby Carrots and Green Beans. Dessert was Basil Macerated Mango, Basil Chantilly, Dark Chocolate Aero, Raspberry Coulis and Coconut & Macadamia Nut Crumble.

Peter commented, "We chose these dishes as it gave us an opportunity to showcase a number of techniques whilst using all of the items in the mystery box provided."

The top three countries in the contest won the chance to attend the ISS Global Leadership Conference (GLC) in Istanbul this year. Elliott and Peter will join their fellow winners to cook up some exciting dishes for the delegates at one day of the conference.

"We are looking forward to collaborating with team Belgium and USA to produce some stunning food at the GLC." Peter said.

The UK chefs highly recommend taking part in the competition, as it gives a unique opportunity to meet and share knowledge with catering professionals from other parts of the world. 

Peter concluded, "We felt very proud to be able to represent the UK at the ICC. When we arrived there was a gradual build-up of pressure, but we were well supported by the UK chef development team…The event was a fantastic experience and I would recommend it to any chefs who want to test their mettle against the best around the globe."
