Farnborough chefs make curry for NHS staff

Two chefs from Farnborough International have made curry meals for local NHS staff (Pictured) at Frimley Park Hospital, Surrey.

Mark Walshaw, senior head chef at Amadeus and his next-door neighbour Gavin Roche, who also works as a chef in the region, sourced a range of fresh produce from Amadeus’ base at Farnborough International Exhibition and Conference Centre to avoid wasting food and do something to support NHS staff.

Roche cooked 50 batches of cous cous curry to the hospital as a special treat for the hard-working staff.

Mark Walshaw, from Amadeus, said: “We thought this would be a fantastic idea to just play a small part in supporting the NHS at what is such an unprecedented time for everyone.

“I managed to source some fresh and dry store goods from my base at Farnborough International and my good friend Gavin cooked it all up into a delicious curry. I hope it goes to show that everyone is really pulling together at the moment for those that need our support.”

Amadeus, who caters for more than 10million people each year, has been doing its best to provide support for others during the recent coronavirus outbreak. Last week, the business helped donate food from its NEC and ICC venues in Birmingham.

Supplies from the Tropic Skincare event at the NEC was passed on to Real Junk Food Project Birmingham, whilst BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT donated 250 lunches from the event at the ICC to Lozells Methodist Community Centre.
