Amadeus picks up a trio of prizes at the MARCHE awards

Amadeus has scooped three awards at the MARCHE Awards for Excellence.

The contract caterer picked up gold for Chef of the Year, Young Chef of the Year and the Cook and Serve team award. It was also shortlisted for Drink Service, Food Service and Manager of Tomorrow.

The Midland's Association of Restaurants, Caterers, Hoteliers and Entertainment (MARCHE) Awards ceremony was held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Birmingham, where more than 1,000 of the region's chefs and restaurant owners gathered last week.

Amadeus's Jessie Cichero was named Chef of the Year, while Gemma Field, last year's silver winner in the Young Chef of the Year category, was this year's gold winner. Leon Churchill, Clayton James and John Davison took the Cook and Serve Team award.

All the winners of last night's ceremony are based at the ICC Birmingham as part of the Amadeus in-house catering team.

Martin Davies , catering general manager for the ICC, added: "I am thrilled for all of last night's winners. The MARCHE Awards are known for their focus on the technical ability of the entrants, and our chefs have put in a lot of time and effort to ensure that they meet this criterion, while also creating innovative and appetising dishes."

All the finalists spent an average of four days of their own time completing tasks set by MARCHE.
