Sundial Group’s Flagship Midlands Meeting Venue Adds Another Award Winner To Its Team
Sundial Group’s flagship Midlands meeting venue, Highgate House has scored another coup with the addition of a second award-winning team member to its staff roster.
The latest addition to the already stellar Northamptonshire team sees ‘Young Chef of the Year’, Leighanne Harrison joining current ‘Chef of the Year’ and Sundial Head Chef, Lee Gaskins in the Highgate House kitchens. Leighanne was named ‘Young Chef of the Year' at the latest Carlsberg UK Northamptonshire Food and Drink Awards and takes up a Commis Chef position at Highgate House.
Head Chef Lee Gaskins said, “"It is fantastic that we have such a strong team in the kitchen at Highgate House, I am really excited by the new talent and about us all working together to launch the brand new seasonal menu for The Terrace Restaurant."
Young Chef of the Year Leighanne Harrison said, “When I first arrived at Highgate House I loved the place, the staff are all so friendly and I'm really enjoying following my passion. I love the thrill of the adrenaline rush in the kitchen and turning simple ingredients into something special."
Noted for its commitment to using only the freshest, seasonal local ingredients, Sundial Group maintains a gold star standard across each of its UK meeting venue menus. Local produce is complimented by free range eggs, poultry monitored and accredited by the Red Tractor Food Standards Scheme, a Vegetarian Society-approved kitchen, a plethora of FairTrade products and suppliers screened for sustainable practices under the terms of Sundial Group’s own Sustainable and Ethical Procurement Policy.
Sundial Group is in itself a four times award winner already this year. It was crowned BRDC Continental Venue Verdict ‘Best Value For Money Meeting Group’ for the fourth consecutive year in January and picked up three awards at the recent Meetings & Incentive Travel Magazine Awards 2012.
