The team put up their cold display on the first day of the competition after working right through the night. They were awarded a silver medal. They competed in the Restaurant of Nations serving 110 covers on the third day of the competition, winning another silver against 30 other countries. Team manager, Nick Vadis said: “I am personally very proud of the team as I have witnessed first-hand the training, dedication and pride the team have put into representing England, sacrificing large amounts of personal time. To represent one’s country is such an honour and an achievement and to bring back home two silver medals in such a tough competition is excellent. “There are a lot of people who have supported the team and assisted in the background. Special thanks to National Team Organiser, Lee Corke for his professional advice and valuable assistance along the way, also as an A Grade Judge representing the British Culinary Federation at these world events. And not forgetting BCF member Kevin Byrne for his sterling work with the photography and President Peter Griffiths and the BCF committee for all their support in helping to make all this possible.”This is your blog post.
