Back in November 2017, GDC were invited into the headquarters of Mozzo, our fantastic coffee partner, who are fanatical about their beans, and have been on a journey of development.
On Friday 12th January, Genuine Foodies gathered together in a belated Christmas event to celebrate 2017, re-living the highlights, whilst being treated to decadent dishes and plenty to drink. Penyard House, an historic Genuine Hotel hidden in the Herefordshire countryside, opened its doors from 3pm to welcome guests from all corners of the UK, with attendees representing all companies of Group Genuine.
We are delighted to announce that The Genuine Dining Co. has been chosen as ‘Caterer of the Year’ at the 2017 Foodservice Cateys.
This prestigious award is a recognition of our drive and ability to deliver an exceptional service, day in, day out. The Genuine Dining Co. constantly challenge the definition of an outsourced foodservice, looking for new ways to innovate, develop and respond to changes within the UK hospitality scene.Read more
In August, chefs across the Genuine Dining Co. whipped out their spatulas and baked, piped and iced all manner of wonderful and tasty creations. From Reece’s pieces inspired treats to chocolate orange and pink, sprinkled icing, the competition was fierce. The pictures below of the competition entries will certainly get your mouth watering!
The cupcakes were scored out of thirty, with ten points each awarded for taste, presentation and creativity. After a week of scoring and more importantly, cupcake eating, the scores were finalised! It was a close call, but the winner was Kerri, with her Heavenly Divine Racker Lemon Cheesecake Cupcakes.
Kerri’s cupcakes proved too hard to resist as she sealed the deal with her lemon infused sponge, topped with cream cheese icing, biscuit crumbs and homemade candied lemon peel. These cupcakes are an indulgence not to be missed.
To celebrate National Cupcake Week from the 18th – 24th September, we encouraged chefs and customers of the Genuine Dining Co. to get involved and recreate the winning cupcake, using Kerri’s recipe.
An exclusive recipe card was distributed, encouraging bakers to get out their cake trays and rustle up a lemony delight. Check out our Instagram (thegenuinediningco) and Twitter (@GenuineDining) to see our celebrations of all things cupcake, in particular, our competition winining, Divine Racker cupcake.
