NMT – Nursery Chef Finalist 2019

We are so proud to announce that Kate, our wonderful Chef from our Chalfont St Peter Nursery has been shortlisted as a finalist for the NMT Nursery Chef 2019

Kate was secretly nominated by her team for her calm approach, cooking delicious healthy meals for 60 to 70 children per day, managing a huge range of dietary needs and allergies.  In addition Kate plans and delivers weekly cooking classes for the children, which she adapts the to ensure even those with allergies can participate fully.

Since joining Hungry Caterpillars Chef team Kate has also been part of the ‘menu planning and development group’, working with senior management to ensure our seasonal menus across the company work not only on paper but on a day to day basis in the nursery.

The next step for Kate is the Chef Judging day which is on the 9th October.  It will be a bit like master chef with a timed cook off and tasting by the judges.  A bit nerve wracking but knowing Kate she will take it all in her stride.  I’m sure you will join me in wishing Kate the best of luck.
