RBH celebrates catering success

30 May 2019

The Royal Bournemouth Hospital’s (RBH) Catering Team has scooped several awards at The Hospital Caterer’s Association Wessex Branch Annual Salon Culinaire Event.

The team claimed five category wins for plated main courses, second place for celebration cake, and two certificates of merit for meat and vegetarian starters.

Organised by The Hospital Caterer’s Association with the support of Bournemouth and Poole College, over 70 participants took part in the competition across 11 classes, providing an opportunity for teams to showcase the wealth of skills and talent within hospital catering.

Andy Whittingham, Head of Catering at RBH, said: “I am immensely proud of my team. They have all displayed great flair and have really enjoyed the thrills of entering such a highly participated competition showcasing hospital caterers’ skill. RBCH had a very successful competition and these awards serve to reflect the high standard of food enjoyed by our patients, visitors and staff alike.”

Endorsed by the SOIL Association, RBH’s Catering Team has previously been recognised for its efforts to ensure food is prepared with locally-sourced and ethical ingredients, receiving the Silver Standard in 2016 for its sustainable and healthy food action plan.
