Two chefs from RAF Wittering and their teammates in the UK Combined Services Culinary Arts Team won a major award at Hotelympia in London on March 2.

Corporal Chris Beavis from 3 Mobile Catering Squadron (3MCS) and Corporal Stefan Sewell from the Officers’ Mess, with their teammates from the RAF and Army, competed in the “Parade des Chefs” category of the Salon Culinaire Competition at Hotelympia.

Incorporating over 80 categories, Salon Culinaire at Hotelympia is the UK’s largest and most prestigious chef competition. The Combined Services Culinary Arts Team (CSCAT) is comprised of the finest chefs from all three Armed Forces.

The Parade des Chefs demands that competing teams produce a three-course meal for 100 paying guests, under almost constant scrutiny from a legion of highly experienced and well qualified judges.

CSCAT were up against seven other teams and, despite seven solid hours of high-pressure cooking, produced a beautiful menu - winning Gold and Best in Class.
