Chef Gordon Carberry from Swords in Co. Dublin took home bronze at the 2023 Sodexo UK and Ireland Chef of the Year competition. Gordon, who is head chef for Sodexo at VHI headquarters in Dublin, competed against eight other finalists from England, Scotland and Wales in front of a live audience at the prestigious HRC Show at ExCel London.
The theme of this year’s competition was ‘Celebrating Our Sustainable Future’ and the focus was on the creative use of sustainable ingredients that need to be incorporated more into daily food consumption to drive positive change in the use of natural resources. The chefs also had to create their dishes with the minimum of food wasted.
