Manchester City stadium, Bar Boulud and Coworth Park in catering awards final

The City of Manchester Stadium's Legends restaurant, Bar Boulud and Coworth Park Hotel & Spa have all been shortlisted in a national catering industry awards scheme.

The winner of the "best kitchen design, supply and installation" in the profit sector in Catering Equipment Distributors (CEDA) Grand Prix Awards will be announced at a dinner in April.

It will then compete against the winner of three other categories for the "CEDA Grand Prix Trophy", announced on the same evening.

The judges will visit the facilities for a provisional inspection this month, during which they will speak to the team and check that all the award submission details are an accurate reflection of the projects.

Speaking about making the CEDA finals, City's head of catering operations, Neil Worcester, and award-winning Legends chef John Benson-Smith, said: "We're extremely proud to have been nominated as a finalist in recognition for our exceptional Legends' kitchen facilities. We've invested a lot of time and effort into our hospitality facilities, and we are particularly proud of Legends.

"Our guests are treated to the ultimate hospitality experience at the City of Manchester Stadium, and the Legends kitchen plays a pivotal role in ensuring we deliver this. We go the extra mile to ensure that everyone receives a unique and personalised service, one which we believe is beyond anything else in the Premier League."
