Masterchefs Hospitality, one of Ireland’s premier caterers, headed up by well-respected businessman, Pat O’Sullivan and his team, has once again showed it has the Midas touch when it comes to winning big at the country’s top food awards.
Over the weekend at the Blas na hEireann Awards, the country’s premier food producer awards, Masterchefs Hospitality wins gold for its delicious Pear & Almond Tart and 2 Silver Medals for its Quiche Lorraine and Wild Atlantic Seafood Chowder; all of which are made at the company’s Artisan Food Factory in Limerick.
The company has also just been awarded one of the industry’s top accolades in the Keeling’s Gold Medal Awards 2016 for its work at The Pavilion restaurant and bar in University of Limerick (UL). The Keeling’s Awards are recognised as the leading independent awards programme for the Irish hospitality industry.
Located on the North Campus of UL, The Pavilion is a truly unique facility for which Masterchefs won the hospitality industry’s ‘Best Newcomer in Ireland’ gong at the 2012 Gold Medal Awards, a category that was open to all industry sectors. It caters for corporate events, weddings and family celebrations as well as providing a first class service to a bustling campus community.
“It has been a busy year for us” says O’Sullivan. “We are delighted Masterchefs Hospitality wins gold again. Catering for large numbers everyday does not have to mean a compromise in quality. We have always been committed to ensuring that every meal and every product delivers 100%. We only use the best local ingredients, provide jobs local to contracts and train our chefs and hospitality staff to the highest standard. The continuous new product and menu development that we do at the Artisan Food Factory, a facility unique to Masterchefs, keeps us at the top of our game. These awards are a testament to the quality of the team we have at Masterchefs, and the excellence we strive for across the business. Looking forward to the day when Masterchefs Hospitality wins gold again!”
