Sodexo Ireland, one of the country’s leading providers of catering and on-site services, is bringing an exciting new feature, The Sodexo Chefs Challenge, to Food & Bev Live 2014. For the event, Sodexo Ireland has
commissioned Derry Clarke to set a culinary challenge for selected members of the company’s 500-strong chef team. One of Ireland’s most famous chefs, Derry has been a consultant with Sodexo Ireland for five years and is involved in the company’s culinary craft development programme.
In preparation, the competing Sodexo Chefs attended a Cookery Masterclass with Derry at his Michelin starred restaurant, L'Ecrivain, in Dublin. For the Challenge, they will have to replicate Derry’s dishes from that Masterclass while adding their own style and twist.
Derry will also chair the judging panel for the Challenge and his fellow judge will include…(Derek Reilly). The winner will be announced after the competition at a gala dinner that evening at the Red Cow Hotel.
Derek Reilly, Executive Chef for Sodexo Ireland, said...
“We are delighted to be working with the team at Food & Bev Live 2014 on such an exciting show and the challenge set by Derry Clarke will give our culinary team the opportunity to display their skills in front of a live audience.”
