Handling the Role of Corporate Development

09 December 2016 | Updated 01 January 1970
 

Sodexo has appointed celebrity chef Adam Handling as a consultant to support the continued development of its Corporate Services business in London.

 

The twenty-seven year old, critically acclaimed chef will work with Sodexo Corporate Services to introduce the very latest modern British cuisine and fine dining into client sites in the capital, creating signature dishes and delivering master skills classes for Sodexo chefs.

 

Handling’s started his career at Gleneagles where he was the first ever trainee chef. His career from there includes winning Scottish Young Chef of the Year 2011, Scottish Chef of the Year 2015 and Newcomer Restaurant of the Year in the Food and Travel Reader Awards 2015. Handling was also awarded the British Culinary Federation’s Chef of the Year in 2014 and was the youngest person to be tipped by the Caterer magazine as one of the ’30 under 30 to watch’ in the 2013 Acorn Awards.

 

Handling will be among the judges at next month’s Sodexo Chef of the Year final at The Hospitality Show in Birmingham before starting his role in February
