We would like to wish Jenny Brown, Chef Manager at Sarum Academy, the best of luck at the finals today.

The International Salon Culinaire, which takes place at ExCeL London from 21st to 23rd March, is the definitive event for the foodservice and hospitality industry, attracting exhibitors and visitors from around the world. It sees top chefs pit their finely honed skills against each other across a diverse range of competition categories.

Jenny will be competing in LT5 Aslop & Walker Live Cheese Starter at 4pm against 9 other chef competitors from all over the catering industry. Jenny will be cooking ‘A foragers taste of Lord London cheese’ which includes a Lord London cheese mousse and Iberico ham wafer served with pickled wild garlic buds & walnut pesto, foraged woodland mushrooms, warm cob nuts and black truffle.


Matt Vernon, Executive Business Development Chef, said: ‘’It’s an amazing achievement by Jenny to reach the final of International Salon Culinaire 2022. Jenny has always gone above and beyond, from her time in the culinary classroom where she embraced it wholeheartedly, to sharing her culinary knowledge by way of delivering informative teaching sessions to the students at Sarum Academy. She is a true credit to work Academy, she is passionate about the service she provides and I’m in no doubt will give it her all. Practice makes perfect, that’s why I’m confident she will get the recognition she deserves in the final of the Salon Culinaire’’

Chris Ince, Chef Director, said: “We’re super proud of Jenny, she’s a talented chef who over the years has not only provided a great service to the students at Sarum Academy, but has also been consistently willing to participate in wider industry events outside of her day job.
To reach a live theatre final at the International Salon Culinaire is a fantastic achievement. We’re very lucky to be working with her. All the best to you Jenny – bring it home chef!”
