Everton chefs cook up an award winning storm

STAFF at 1 of the UK's leading football stadia are celebrating after scooping a top catering accolade for the 2nd year running, on 1 June 2017.  The Sodexo Prestige Venues AND Events team at Goodison Park; home to Everton Football Club; was named Chef Team of the Year in the Stadium Events and Hospitality Awards 2017. Held annually to recognise the UK's best football and rugby stadia venues, the awards attracted entries from scores of sporting venues across the country. Having won in 2016, the Goodison Park Team once again impressed the judges during a live kitchen event held at the Hospitality Show, at the NEC, Birmingham, earlier this year. Teams were given 1 hour to prepare, cook and present a 3 course menu, which would be suitable for their club chairman to entertain the head of the FA or RFU for dinner.

Debbie Slee, sales and marketing manager for Sodexo Prestige Venues and Events at Everton Football Club, said:- "This is another amazing achievement for our talented and dedicated team at Goodison Park, and we are proud that they have now won this accolade 2 years in a row.  It proves what we already knew, that our team is the best in the business, and this is testament to everyone's hard work, dedication and determination. We were up against some strong competition, but our team stepped up to the challenge and refused to let the award go anywhere else. We're delighted to have retained the title for another year."

Staff from Goodison Park picked up the award; the latest in a long line of accolades for the team in the last 12 months; at a prize ceremony held at Anfield, home of their main rival, Liverpool FC. Last summer, Gareth Billington, Sodexo Sports and Leisure executive head chef at... Goodison Park, won the People's Choice award in the Craft Guild of Chefs awards, and in September 2017, the ground was named Sports Hospitality Venue of the Year, at the Downtown in Business Work Hard, Play Hard awards.
