Equipment supplier for the hospitality industry, Russams, celebrated the launch of a new birdcage plate stand by being treated to afternoon tea from an events catering chef.

Freelance chef David Wardle created a spread for the Rotherham-based team using the Utopia-manufactured stand to hold an assortment of sweet and savoury scones, macarons, sweet bakes and éclairs.

Company director, Richard Russum, said: "We felt this was a great opportunity to reward the team after a busy summer and launch our afternoon tea birdcage stand - the pastries and savouries looked marvellous on it and I can vouch for how delicious they tasted. 

"Thank you to David who, as expected, prepared an excellent spread for us."

A former pastry chef at The Grand Hotel, Eastbourne, Wardle now works as a development chef at Birds Eye, Dr. Oetker, JLA Group and MKN Equipment.

“I have a fond association with Russums, as do many chefs who remember buying their first knife set from them. I bought my first knife set and chef's uniform from them 32 years ago," said Wardle.

The 37cm birdcage plate comes in an aged copper finish with space for three 23cm plates.
