Our Latest Chef’s Academy in Ealing, West London

24 July 2023

The Culinary and Dietetics team from NHS Supply Chain: Food held the latest Chef’s Academy of the 18 July 2023 at the University of West London.

These events demonstrate how combining relevant, tailored training programmes with delicious, new recipes, can help to motivate and inspire the great chefs working within our NHS trusts, accelerating the benefits of collaboration.

Our Chef‘s Academies provide added value and inspiration for our NHS catering teams and are always well received by the attendees. As a gesture of our appreciation for their time and participation, each attendee is given a free apron to take away with them.

We are proud to be continuing with our Chef’s Academy events throughout the rest of 2023, with our next Chef’s Academy training event taking place on Wednesday 26 July 2023 in Norwich and further events to be announced later in the year.
