Stocks and sauces supplier Essential Cuisine sponsors Culinary Ability Awards ‘Olympic dream’

Stocks and sauces supplier Essential Cuisine has been a patron for The Culinary Ability Awards for over a decade and has now become the two-year lead sponsor as the organisation prepares for its ‘greatest challenge’ to compete at the 2020 IKA Culinary Olympics.

The Culinary Ability Awards is a non-profit organisation that is dedicated to ‘championing’ people with disabilities in working kitchens.

Jonathan Harvey-Barnes, senior business development chef at Essential Cuisine, said: “The Culinary Ability Awards was founded on a mission to encourage people with disabilities to have their talent, dedication and abilities recognised; it’s a message of inclusivity that we very much share; an ethos that has driven our long partnership.

“We’re proud to support them on their journey to competing at the Culinary Olympics and are calling on the industry to join us in helping them achieve their goal.”

The Culinary Olympics will be held in Stuttgart where more than 2,000 chefs from more than 50 countries will compete for gold medals. The Culinary Ability Awards are only part way to reaching their monetary goal to pay for its team to fly out to Germany for the five-day event.

Chris Sanford, Culinary Ability Awards founder and chef, commented: “It’s only now when we face the biggest cooking challenge of our careers that I fully understand and appreciate the support of our sponsors: the trust and commitment that they show truly gives us the leverage to compete on a world stage.

“The Culinary Ability Awards has become a movement of likeminded people committed to the term ‘social responsibility’; we encourage our industry to follow Essential Cuisine’s example and support us on our epic journey to the Culinary Olympics!”
