Joining a culinary apprenticeship means Liam is cooking up a storm

Up and coming culinary superstar, Liam Clements, is an apprentice commis chef within our Government & Agencies segment. He is based in the Tidworth Garrison at Bhurtpore Barracks, supporting a team of twenty chefs to produce over 800 meals a day for the British Army.

Liam started his Level 2 apprenticeship in 2018 and has taken full advantage by applying for internal and external culinary competitions, including Sodexo Apprentice Chef of the Year.

At Sodexo's Salon Culinaire, he was awarded a silver medal for vegetable cuts, a bronze medal for fish preparation and a certificate of merit for the Nutella challenge. He has also recently won a contract Star of the month award.

Liam also competed at the National Néstle Torque D’Or competition in London after progressing from the preliminary round at Unit level.

I decided to start an apprenticeship last year as I wanted a challenge. I am always willing to improve my skills and knowledge within the catering business. This is an amazing opportunity to learn a new trade and to acquire additional skills and knowledge.
