Chef Appreciation Week (16-20 September): Saying thank you to our chefs!

At Compass Group, we are celebrating Chef Appreciation Week, a time for us to say thank you to our great team of chefs for their dedication to delivering great food every day. Compass venues across the globe are hosting events in their cafes and restaurants to honour our chefs whose commitment to excellence is transforming the dining experience.

As the world’s largest employer of chefs, the Compass team has a wide range of culinary backgrounds and experience. Many of our chefs have trained in prestigious restaurants and bring this expertise to the table daily. But what every one of them has in common is an appreciation of the power of food and an understanding of how great food can transform your day. Chef Appreciation Week gives us the opportunity to pause and show our appreciation to these ‘unsung heroes’ of our organisation.

Speaking about the initiative, Chris Chidley, Managing Director of Compass Group Ireland said: “Food is at the heart of what we do here at Compass Group and our culinary team brings a passion for delivering great food to all of our customers every day. I have no doubt that our chefs are amongst the best in the world and without them we wouldn’t be able to deliver the nutritious and innovative dishes that Compass has become known for. Chef Appreciation Week allows us to acknowledge their commitment and honour the vital contribution they make to our business.”

We talked to a number of the chefs working at key Compass Group locations across Ireland and want to share with you the enthusiasm these chefs bring to their work in the kitchen.  Much of the work they do takes place ‘behind the scenes’ and so this week we are shining a light on these people who create the unique Compass Group food and service offering.

It’s a great opportunity for us and our customers to get to know the people ‘behind the food’ and ultimately to say thank you.
