…and the KP of the Year for 2017 is:

José Núnez of The Stafford, London

Incomparable work ethic and highest standards mark out kitchen porter king

The search for the 2017 KP of the Year is over.  Winterhalter, whose brainchild the awards are, has announced that this year’s winner is José Núnez, who works at The Stafford, the historic 5 star hotel in St James, London.

José was nominated by Mark Surguy, The Stafford’s hotel manager.  Judges were impressed by the KP’s initiative – for example, he suggested a new storage solution that reduced breakages significantly.  “He has a work ethic that cannot be compared,” said Mark.  “He’s always smiling, he holds himself and every member of his team to the highest standards.  Nothing is ever too much for him.”  (More…)

The Hut goes retro to bring things up to date

Popular beach restaurant pleased with the impact new Precision refrigeration is having

The Hut is a popular restaurant situated in Colwell Bay, on the northwest coast of the Isle of Wight. Since opening five years ago it has established a reputation for the quality of its menu. “Our philosophy has always been to use local produce as much as possible,” owner George Adams explains. “The quality of the seafood we use is very important, so we need to be able to keep it in perfect condition until it’s ready to be used.”
