CulinArt Chefs honored in Food Waste Challenge

RYE BROOK, N.Y., April 8, 2021—Peter Klein, dir. of culinary development, and Joe Ball, regional exec. chef, were each honored in Compass Group’s 2021 Stop Food Waste Day Global Recipe Challenge, along with nine chefs from other Compass sectors.

To participate in the Challenge, chefs were encouraged to submit recipes that are low or zero-waste in nature, use whole ingredients, emphasize shelf-life concerns, and present unique ideas around commonly wasted ingredients, trims, and over-produced items. Chef Klein’s contribution was a Garlic Leek Roasted Salmon with Crispy Broccoli Florets and Leek Green-Broccoli Stem Slaw, while Chef Ball submitted a Waste Not Rainbow Carrot Salad.

The Recipe Challenge, judged by top culinary experts in Compass Group, coincides with Envision Group’s efforts to promote Stop Food Waste Day (April 28). This year, Amy Keister, Compass Group’s Senior VP Sustainability, will participate in the Stop Food Waste Day Virtual Event, which will feature 25-plus speakers discussing the food waste crisis.

What our clients are saying

“I’m the GM for Branson [Ultrasonics] and based in the Brookfield office.  This is the first week that the café has been up and running in our new headquarters and just want to acknowledge the great job Adam Schnittert and the CulinArt staff onsite have done.  Our employees’ feedback thus far has been very positive.  The expanded options and menu quality have been very well received.  Just want to send you a quick note of thanks.”

“Thank you for all the accommodations for food intolerances and allergies.  I continue to hear positive comments about the quality of the food and the options. Please pass along our thanks and gratitude to your whole team!!!!”

“Many, and I do mean many, thanks for a great Parents Weekend.  I heard from so many happy parents and you all work very hard to make it happen.  In gratitude and kindness…”

“What a wonderful dinner we had tonight for our international families. The food was delicious and well presented as well.”

“We appreciate the excellent service that is a hallmark of the Chadwick Culinart team. You all are such professionals - and you always deliver your service in such a pleasant manner! Thank you for everything you do to help make the Village events successful. We greatly appreciate your talents, efforts, and kindness.”

“We can’t thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into getting this emergency shipment of water to our Waco, Tx office. As always, you guys pulled out all the stops and did everything possible to help! I know it doesn’t seem like much to you, but our employees in TX that need drinking water are truly grateful. I feel so fortunate to work with such true professionals. I think you set the bar that your competition wishes they could match!”

“The roasted tofu/noodle/edamame arugula salad with cabbage, carrots and red peppers was something that I would buy from a restaurant or food truck without question. It would win best school lunch in the U.S. without a doubt if there was such a competition! The textures and flavors were a perfect blend, tied together by an excellent dressing. I don't think anyone would be mad if that popped up on the menu every week. Thanks again to you and your staff for such high-quality food!”

“Thank you and your staff for all the care and thought you give CSW adults and students. You approach events with such care and elegance- I don’t know how you do it! Especially day after day. Please thank all your staff for their wonderful work and kind manner with all of us. Here is to a great year!”

“Thank you for including me today in the food waste demonstration/[chef competition] and flattering me with the role of “judge.” I will proudly don the [Stop Food Waste Day] apron the next time I plan an “event” in our own kitchen. I think this is a very worthwhile cause and the statistics you read off are staggering. They, alone, can intimidate a home chef, let alone be the “driver’ for a professional one.”

“We want to take a moment to celebrate all the employees who worked on the front lines during unprecedented times. Your efforts and dedication to going above and beyond are noticed and appreciated. Thank you for being the heart and soul of CulinArt Group. We couldn’t do this without you. Chef Jay and Chef Paul have been so awesome in the Hubbell Café.  There has been significant change, but they take it in stride and keep the delicious food coming.  We truly appreciate them!”
