Dycem Non-Slip was recently on hand as the search for the Care Chef of the Year 2018 continued at the UK south west regional cook-off. The National Association of Care Catering’s (NACC) prestigious culinary competition seeks out the nation’s best chef working in the care sector and it also celebrates the excellent talent, skills and professionalism of chefs in the sector.
Super grippy Dycem Non-Slip mats helped the regions top chefs with various tasks such as chopping and mixing as they competed to create a delectable, nutritionally-balanced, two-course menu (main and dessert) suitable for diners in a care setting.
The competitions judging panel were looking for new exciting recipes whilst adhering to a strict budget (£2.25 per head) and meeting the nutritional needs of their clientele.
The standard at the cook-off was extremely highly and closely fought but unfortunately only two chefs could be chosen to secure a place in the national final. The talented lucky two were Simon Lewis and Nicola Burroughs who go on to compete for the coveted NACC Care Chef of the Year 2018 title. Congratulations and good luck in the final to you both!
