British food-to-go chain EAT has reinforced its commitment to developing its menu proposition by appointing a professional MasterChef finalist as its new executive chef.
French-born Arnaud Kaziewicz, a MasterChef: The Professionals 2016 finalist, is stepping into the role with intentions of drawing on his experience at Michelin starred restaurants to enhance the menu.
Holly Oades, marketing director at EAT, said: “Arnaud brings a wealth of culinary knowledge, global travels and experience in food development to ensure EAT is a serious contender on the high street.”
Kaziewicz commented: “For me this is an opportunity to get back to basics; simple, fresh ingredients, that are combined to be eaten and enjoyed, and that are always seasoned perfectly. High street retail doesn’t have to be about mass production; it should be based on home cooked food.”
Alongside the announcement of Kaziewicz’s appointment, EAT confirmed it will launch new salads, featuring vegan and vegetarian options, on April 25 to sit alongside the newly-revamped baguettes.
