This year’s Kitchen Inferno, hosted by TV Celebrity Chef John Torode was yet another outstanding triumph! Congratulations go to this year’s winners, the Red Team led by Sure Group Enterprise Sales Director for Jersey, Jon McCulloch and his wing woman Giorgina Marzana. Worthy runners up on the night were the Blue Team, led by Kevin Allenby of Omega Financial Services.
Though donations are still coming in the event has already raised thousands for Jersey Cheshire Home and Luke’s House in India and we would like to extend our sincere gratitude to all those involved in making it such a success.
The 22 contestants on both teams all did an amazing job and worked tirelessly for 15 hours in the Hotel de France kitchen to serve a 3-course fine dining menu to 150 guests. They were trained by Michelin Star Chef Steve Smith and Ellen de Jager Smith from Bohemia, David Cameron the Executive Chef at Liberation Group and Phani Kundeti The Hotel de France’s Pastry Chef.
Jon McCulloch, Sure Group Enterprise Sales Director Jersey commented: “It was fantastic to lead the Red Team to victory on Saturday night. It was an honour to work with such a great bunch of people, learn from such talented Chefs and meet John Torode. After a 15-hour day cooking in the kitchen I have a new perspective on what it like behind the scenes in a restaurant. I shall be sticking to my day job but I am delighted to have had the opportunity!”
