Winner of Caterer/CEDA £60,000 Kitchen competition revealed

A Bath comprehensive school has won the Caterer and Hotelkeeper and CEDA (Catering Equipment Distributors Association) Win a £60,000 Kitchen competition.

Tim Fletcher, head chef at Beechen Cliff School in Alexandra Park, Bath, can now prepare for a comprehensive kitchen refurbishment at the site, which has 1,040 pupils as well as a co-educational Sixth Form of over 235 students.

Winner Fletcher said: "A lot of our equipment is very old and the space was not originally designed as a kitchen. "We are always discussing ways to improve the flows and to be given the opportunity to fulfil our plans is amazing."

Fletcher already encourages pupils to be adventurous in their tastes by offering a wide variety of dishes such as pigeon pie, Piri Piri chicken and game terrine in addition to the more traditional roasts and homemade fishcakes.

The school will now receive design advice from a CEDA member who will also commission and install Fletcher's choice of equipment from a possible 16 supplier sponsors up to the value of £5,000 per supplier.

The competition was also supported by Hotelympia's organisers Fresh RM.
