Premier Foods Announces ‘Dysphagia Chef of the Year 2016’ Shortlist
Premier Foods has announced the finalists in its first 'Dysphagia Chef of the Year' competition. Five chefs will compete for this title on 1 September, at the Premier Foods head office in Hertfordshire, in front of a live audience. Their brief was to develop two low cost recipes - one main course and one dessert - suitable for people suffering from dysphagia.
Dysphagia is a symptom, as well as a condition in itself, which makes it difficult to swallow food.
Representatives from the healthcare sector will join Premier Foods’ dysphagia catering expert, Preston Walker, to select the winning dish and award the prize - a €1,000 worth of kitchen supplies or equipment for the winning contestant's workplace.
Mark Taylor, Foodservice Channel Controller at Premier Foods, commented: "The quality of entries was fantastic. We see this competition as a key opportunity to showcase the skills of chefs and caterers working in the care, healthcare and education sector."
