Kitchen Inferno 2016 Video Highlights

Wow - what a day and what a night on Saturday. The feedback has been terrific. Congratulations to the Red Team led by Sure Group Enterprise Sales Director Jersey, Jon McCulloch and his wing woman Giorgina Marzana.

The Freedom Media event raised thousands for Jersey Cheshire Home and Luke’s House in India. The 22 contestants on both teams all did an amazing job worked tirelessly for 15 hours in the Hotel de France kitchen to serve a 3-course fine dining menu for 150 guests. They had been trained by Michelin Star Chef Steve Smith and Ellen de Jager Smith from Bohemia, David Cameron the Executive Chef at Liberation Group and Phani Kundeti The Hotel de France’s Pastry Chef. TV Celebrity Chef John Torode hosted the evening. Well done everyone and huge thanks to all our guests.

Special thanks to our headline sponsor Jacksons and all indeed to all our sponsors for your generosity and support.

Service and results

The Sure Team – Team Red won Kitchen Inferno 2016.

Jon McCulloch, Sure Group Enterprise Sales Director Jersey commented: “It was fantastic to lead the Red Team to victory on Saturday night with Giorgina Marzana from Sure. It was an amazing experience and it was an honor to work with such a great bunch of people, learn from such talented Chefs and meet John Torode. We raised thousands for two very worthwhile causes and everyone had a great meal. After a 15-hour day cooking in the kitchen I have a new perspective on what it like behind the scenes in a restaurant. I shall be sticking to my day job but I am delighted to have had the opportunity!”

Kitchen Inferno Supports

Jersey Cheshire Home

The mission of Jersey Cheshire Home is to enhance the lives of the disabled residents and their families. Whether through activity in the pool or gym, day care or respite they continue to support some of the most disabled people in our community. The vast spectrum of facilities provided to support the many needs of the residents require constant maintenance, reinvestment and upgrade to enable the continuation of the high standard that is so important in enhancing the wellbeing of everyone who uses Jersey Cheshire Home.

Luke’s House

Luke’s House is a new charity born out of the personal experience of one of our team members at Freedom Media. Darren’s son Luke was born very prematurely and as a result suffers from cerebral palsy. On a recent trip to India, Darren witnessed firsthand the stark difference in the level of care and opportunity for support for disabled children there. In conjunction with existing contacts in India this new charity has been formed and a home will be built called Luke’s House that will give these children hope, a home and medical care. Money raised from this event will help to build specialised facilities and provide trained staff.
