Welcome to the July Issue of Stir it up Magazine. Summer is upon us and as the market re-opens caterers across the foodservice marketplace are looking to change up their menus to keep customers, residents, pupils, and students happy, healthy, and content.
Our Leading Lights feature this month is Tom Kerridge. We chatted to Tom about how his life has changed since he last featured with us in 2016, coping with the pandemic, the future of hospitality, his new book, working with Marcus Rashford and much more.
The Category Focus feature looks at the roadmap to recovery and how hospitality operators are balancing new regulations and changes in consumer behavior with the latest insight and advice from key industry figures. Our Melting Pot on page 36 looks at Summer Menus giving some delicious and inspirational menu ideas focussed on Street Food.
On page 15, the ‘Nourishing Young Minds’ piece talks about the importance of Educating nursery school children about food, where it comes from and how to use it in cooking.
‘The Ingredients of Success’ on page 19 looks how the Catering charity The Clink works in partnership with Her Majesty’s Prison and Probation Service (HMPPS) to reduce re-offending rates by training inmates in their kitchens.
In addition to all this, we are always delighted to include our own readers in our regular features.
We hope you enjoy the July issue.
