McClures looking for the chefs of the future!

What a great day we had at our Annual Catering Competition held at Kendal College. This year the standards were even higher than last year, which is saying a lot.  The students had a budget of £10 to create 3 courses and could each decide what they would like to produce for the panel.

This year the judging panel was joined by Graham Gelder from McClures, Michael Southcott from the Café Ambio Group and Jack Bond, Head Chef from the 5 Star Gilpin Spice Restaurant.

Ben McClure, Sales Director said:

“It has been a fantastic day and wonderful to see such talent coming through the catering Department at Kendal College.  The future for chefs in Cumbria is looking bright ! ”


Some amazing dishes were produced, and the eventual winners were: –
🥇Lucie Cushnie
🥈Jovi Harrison
🥉Shauna Danskin


Congratulations to all involved and thank you to Allen Markey @allenmarkey for the photography
