Our Mission

To become an outstanding, progressive company with the infrastructure to deliver continuous local business growth through its people.

Catering Employer of the Year

Cambscuisine named Catering Employer of the Year 2020 in annual awards organised by Cambridge Regional College.

Three of our Chefs who went through apprenticeships with CRC say that earning while being in a real-world work setting has been perfect for their learning style.

Jordan Rowney, hopes his chef skills will give him the option to travel, with an ultimate dream of owning his own Michelin star restaurant.

He said: “I had a part time job in a hotel and the head chef asked if I fancied being kitchen porter. That’s when I got a taste for the life of a chef. I loved it. I began doing pastry and then had the chance of an apprenticeship.

“This way of learning means you are not on your own, you have the benefit of more experienced chefs and the background of classroom learning too.”

Reece Alderson, also hopes to travel and become an established head chef. He said: “I studied catering at GCSE level and was entered into a regional contest by my school teachers which I enjoyed.
