Wyboston Lakes Resort has announced that one of their young chefs Leanna Bromley-Higgs, has won the IACC Copper Skillet Global Chef of the Year competition at this year’s conference held in Philadelphia.
IACC recognises the vital role that foodservice plays in conference venue operations and stages an Annual Copper Skillet Global Chef of the Year Competition.
The international competition is designed to highlight the artistry and skills of IACC-member conference venue chefs from around the world and to honour their contributions in providing unparalleled conference experiences. Each chef creates a serving with mystery ingredients, then cooks it on two gas stoves with just two pans, aiming to present a restaurant-standard dish.
Leanna joined the Training Centre team at Wyboston Lakes Resort in March 2014 and was promoted to chef de partie.
Glenn Corby, executive head chef, said: “Leanna always faces challenges with a smile on her face and a bounce in her stride. I feel this work ethic helps her to be so successful when representing Wyboston Lakes Resort in culinary competitions.”
Wyboston Lakes managing director Mark Jones, said: “Watching Leanna working alongside other talented chefs from other top venues was an incredibly proud moment and to win was an absolutely fantastic achievement. What a special moment for her and I am glad I was there to share it with her.”
