Drake & Morgan’s executive chef Robert Mitchell has been named as the winner of the first #loveyourfridge prize draw organised by Williams Refrigeration.
The draw was open to anyone who contributed pictures or fridge care tips to the #loveyourfridge hashtag on Twitter.
The top prize was a hamper from Harrods, which included wine, champagne and a selection of luxurious food and confectionary, and was presented to Mitchell by Williams marketing manager, Martin Laws.
Runners-up Heather Bennett, Steve Childs, and Olivia Kirby each received a bottle of Taittinger Prestige Rosé Champagne and two champagne glasses.
Williams decided to launch the initiative after deciding that it was time to give refrigeration the recognition it deserves and raise awareness of the vital role fridges play in commercial kitchens.
Chefs were encouraged to get involved by sharing pictures and tips on Twitter. Operators that tweeted particularly creative or amusing tweets received a fridge care pack featuring useful items to help keep fridges looking and performing as good as new.
The pack included a polishing cloth, stainless steel cleaner and condenser cleaning brush, as well as a guide packed with tips on fridge maintenance.
