Limerick-based Masterchefs, Ireland’s premier catering company, has won two top awards at the internationally acclaimed Great Taste Awards.

It’s delicious Goats Cheese, Spinach & Red Onion Quiche and Quiche Lorraine beat off stiff competition to take two Gold Awards, with the judges citing ‘delicious flavours’ and ‘lovely delicate texture’ in their winning comments.

The Goats Cheese, Spinach & Red Onion Quiche already took a Gold Award at the 2014 Blas na hEireann Awards and featured on the menu that Masterchefs served to the Royal Couple, The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall, during their stay in Ireland earlier in the year.

The winning quiches are made by Chef Mary Lane & her team, at The Artisan Food Factory, Masterchefs’ food facility which is dedicated to hand making products served to customers from the finest locally sourced ingredients. Set up in 2013, The Artisan Food Factory also provides fresh food daily to Masterchefs award-winning chain of Café Noir restaurants which are located in and around Limerick.

“We are obviously delighted with this result, particularly as it is our first time entering these prestigious Awards. It is testament to the quality that we strive for at The Artisan Food Factory, and the brilliant team that work there” says Masterchefs MD, Pat O’Sullivan.
Masterchefs is synonymous with quality and attention to detail. Over the years the company has successfully catered in most of the country’s prime locations and for some of Ireland’s most prestigious social events.
