Chef Mike Carter joins MKN team in training role

Mike Carter, a chef who started his career at the Savoy has joined the MKN team to help schools prepare for universal infant free school meals (UIFSM).

Brought on board to bring an experienced chef approach to training, Carter's role will be to demonstrate to school caterers how to the get the best out of combis and their features.

"The dynamics of school kitchens are changing and, while school chefs and cooks do a great job, it can be scary stuff learning to adapt to new equipment and methods," said Carter.

The chef-led training is currently being delivered to Hampshire County Council Catering Services, which serves 45,000 meals a day to 480 primary and secondary schools.

"Hampshire realised early what training and support would be required, and has made two of its own cooks into combi trainers who provide menu specific advice once we have done our bit. From our end, this might be an hour's training working with the ovens throughout the day or going in to help on an ongoing basis or as required," added Carter.
