The One Point took on the Telecoms giant Kingston Communications last night in a rematch for the coveted Devil’s Kitchen Crown, in aid of The Smile Foundation. Devil's Kitchen is a cooking competition that sees each company invite 40 guests, cook a three course meal and deliver front of house service throughout the evening. The guests rate the food and service via score cards and the best average score wins. Last night The One Point had the final say and won the coveted prize - but only by a tight margin - 0.4 of a score.
The kitchen was headed up by 2 head chefs - KC's Head of Business Alan Worthing, and The One Point's MD Martin Lauer. There was a lot of banter and support given between the teams throughout the day and evening and all of the food left the kitchen on time. A special thank you go to Dan and Kieron whose culinary expertise was tested to the max in order to keep us all under control and on time. The One Point's Steve Graham took the best cooks out of The One Point’s Kitchen Team with Alan winning the overall prize on the night.
The front house teams also delivered brilliantly, keeping guest well fed and oiled. TOP's Nicola Willingham won the Best Front of House team member also – for the second time running.
Tessa Wray from the Smile Foundation thanked the teams, “I just wanted to say well done to both Teams for last night - an enjoyable and ‘competitive’ evening for all (I think the guests were just as competitive!), with a fantastic £2,135 raised!!”
Martin Lauer, head Chef of TOP’s winning team said, “It was a tough day and we are very pleased to have won. Everyone pulled together on the night. KC were a brilliant team and we look forward to the next one!”
