Lincat equipment put through its paces at WorldSkills 2011
Catering equipment provided by UK manufacturer, Lincat, was put through its paces by the world’s most talented young chefs last week, as they competed for the ultimate prize of a gold medal, in the cooking competition of WorldSkills London 2011, the world’s largest skills event.
The event attracted over 1000 young people, from over 50 countries across the globe, to compete to be the best of the best in a wide range of vocational skills, from cooking and creative arts to IT and engineering.
Lincat supplied 19 Lincat Opus OSC61 SelfCooking Centers and three Silverlink 600 electric salamander grills, having been chosen as an “Official Supplier of the WorldSkills Cooking Competition 2011.”
Nick McDonald, Marketing Director of Lincat, said:

It was exciting to see our equipment being put through its paces by some of the world’s brightest young cooking talent, watched by the great and the good of the hospitality industry worldwide.
“It’s satisfying too that our equipment will now, after the event, be supplied to further education colleges throughout the UK to create a positive, lasting legacy. Warm congratulations of course also go to Britain’s cooking gold medal winner, Ben Murphy."
