Bisto Care Caterer of the Year announced

The winner of our Foodservice Bisto Care Caterer of the Year, in association with Country Range has been revealed.

After a gruelling live cook-off between five finalists, Juliana Martins Pinto, Caterer at Cuffley Manor Care Home in Potters Bar was crowned winner. Juliana cooked her way to victory with her main dish of Bisto Chicken Ballotine stuffed with Spinach and Mushroom, served with Hasselback Potatoes, Asparagus Spears, Carrots and Bisto Chicken Gravy Granules. Juliana’s dessert dish of Poached Pears served with Country Range Custard and Toasted Flaked Almonds was the perfect final sweet touch to seal her victory and win the judges over.

The  final, which took place at our head office in St Albans, saw the finalists prepare and cook three portions of their chosen main meal and dessert dish within a 90 minute time frame. Each caterer had to include a Bisto product within their main dish and a Country Range Brand product in their dessert, with the total budget for the two dishes not exceeding £2.25. 

Sarah Robb, Channel Marketing Manager, comments: “We were so excited to taste the dishes we’d shortlisted on paper and witness them come to life at the final, and they certainly didn’t disappoint. I want to say a huge congratulations and a big thank you to all those who were shortlisted, and to those who took the time to enter and attend the live final. Our winner, Juliana, was incredible, she scored highly on her great working method, cleanliness and timing. The chicken dish she created was deliciously moist and the whole menu really worked well together.”
