Catering & Hospitality Innovation Blog News Content Image

We recently held a week of training sessions for our entire sales force, to ensure we can serve customers to the best of our ability and meet all requirements of any catering establishment quickly & efficiently. Utilising our fully functional bar area & commercial demo kitchen, we introduced our sales force to interactive workshops involving cocktail making in the latest innovative glassware ranges, and a 10 minute plating challenge, whereby teams were tasked with selecting appropriate tableware to plate up and present a range of dishes, from starters & salads through to mains & desserts. Find out more about the sessions below!

Cocktail Challenge With Glacial Glassware

Our Glacial glassware is a collection of stylish, high quality and comprehensive glassware including stunning Crystal ranges. From fully toughened & fine dining to everyday glassware needs. Have a look at the Insta story from the day when we challenged our sales team to create one of three cocktails, from Moscow Mules to El Diablos, they were tasked with creating a cocktail with only the ingredients list & nothing else.

They were then judged on taste, presentation & likeness to the original. See our Instagram highlights reel here.

Food Presentation Challenge With Creme & Artisan

Our intrepid sales team then turned their hand to our food presentation challenge, pictured above here using Artisan's Onyx range of tableware. The idea behind this session was to create a stunning plate of food, utilising any piece of tableware from our 60m front of house display. Competitors were then judged on presentation & tableware choice to raise awareness of the rapidly growing trend towards instagrammable menus, and how much difference they can make to your restaurants margins.
