“We know that education, more than anything else improves our chances of building a better life”
All of our kitchen operative and trainee chefs go through our diploma. It is a collaboration between industry, education and City and Guilds. It takes into account the latest approach to food safety, health and safety and industry practices.
The content of this qualification is underpinned by the belief that to work as a successful chef in the catering industry it is essential to have a good foundation in a wide range of high quality cooking skills and to be able to apply them across a range of catering contexts.
As the Head Chef of Nurture Catering, a large part of my role is to help give visitors skills to move them back into sustainable careers. It’s not just about catering, it’s about building confidence for people who might be down on luck.
Six years ago I was working as a head chef of a busy hotel, working 80 hours a week. I was craving a quieter life and looking for a new challenge, so when I spotted the job going at St George’s Crypt as the head chef. It was like divine inspiration and I had to apply, never expecting that I would ever get the job. Six years on and I haven’t looked back.
The rewards have been endless.
The Nurture Catering team is led by Chef David Pilling
It began with one talented chef, one pushy manager and a true belief that everyone has potential.
The original remit was to “earn enough through the odd catering job to cover your wages so that we could train residents to budget and cook wholesome food”
How things change!
A dedicated chef, mentor, and experienced training facilitator, with many years in the catering industry.
Unwavering in his pursuit to producing only the absolute best results for Nurture Catering and its valued customers.
