Foster Supports Team UK at
‘World Cup of Cooking’
Foster Refrigerator is throwing its full support behind Team UK, represented by British candidate, Ian Musgrave, and commis chef Adam Beaumont, both of the Ritz London, as they prepare to square off against 23 other countries in the world’s largest and most prestigious chef contest - the Bocuse d’Or.
Striving to better the UK’s highest ever finish of fourth, for the past few months, Ian, Adam and team coach Tom Phillips, previous candidate and head chef at Restaurant Story, have spent every spare moment at a purpose-built test kitchen in Westminster Kingsway College, developing and creating against an exacting Bocuse d’Or brief.
Team UK have been helped in their quest by brand new, British made EcoPro G3 cabinet and counter refrigeration solutions, provided by Foster as a key team supporter, giving the chefs crucial peace of mind around reliability and temperature control as they strive for culinary perfection.
The trio will now travel to Lyon, taking much of the purpose-built kitchen with them, to compete on the first day of the Bocuse d’Or (22nd January), which is held in front of a passionate, live audience as part of the Sirha trade event.
On the partnership, Ian commented: “As Team UK we want to showcase the best of British – that’s from the produce, the concept design of our dishes to the refrigeration. Temperature control, reliability, durability, and quality are key to what we do and so working with British manufacturer like Foster Refrigerator was an absolute no brainer for us – we need to produce the best, so we must work with the best.”
Foster’s Marketing Communications Manager, Katy Chilvers added, “We’re incredibly proud to support Team UK at the Bocuse d’Or and wish them all the very best on their quest for culinary immortality. We’ll be watching on the 22nd and hoping that Ian and Adam can bring home the spoils.”
