We love chefs. After all, we were founded by Jamie and Hugh. In 2019 we were inspired by the many school chefs who created vegetable displays that can only be described as stunning, and in 2020 we challenged caterers in schools across the UK to wow us with their creativity and the inspiration they bring to the children they feed. And boy did they do just that! The Caterer’s Challenge is back for 2021, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store.
