As part of Unox’s partnership with International Salon Culinaire 2022, the cooking equipment manufacturer will be offering a tempting prize for the chef competition’s victors.
The contest, held as part of the HRC trade show, will see Best in Class and Chair of Judges Award winners crowned, and as part of Unox’s support, the firm will be taking them all to Italy for a learning opportunity.
All winners will be treated to a two-day VIP study tour to Venice and the Unox HQ in Padova, where they will experience a full cooking demonstration by the brand’s corporate chef team. They will also be given a tour of the Unox factory and HQ, seeing the latest innovations being produced in Unox’s sustainable production facility, as well as enjoying a half-day Venice tour, including a visit to a live Unox operational kitchen, before flying home.
Unox is the combi oven partner for the competition at HRC 2022 on 21-23 March, providing its Chef Top Mind Mind.Maps Plus 10 grid ovens to allow challengers to grill, fry, roast, brown and smoke cook to showcase their skills.
Scott Duncan, MD of Unox UK, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting the International Salon Culinaire 2022, particularly after what has been such a challenging time for so many in the industry. We feel it’s important for manufacturers to be giving something back and this is our way of helping to nurture and showcase some of the incredible talent our industry has to offer.
“All winners across the six events and the Chair of Judges award winner will get to experience a once-in-a-lifetime trip, where they can see what goes into developing innovative Unox solutions at our global HQ.
“They’ll get to see products being made on the production line – including the Cheftop Mind.Maps combi ovens that they’ll have used live on stage in the competition – and how we benefit from making so many components ourselves instead of outsourcing. They’ll see those products being used by some top culinary talent and they’ll get to see the fantastic city of Venice too.”
