Collection of medals won at NZChefs National Salon

Posted on Tuesday, 11 August 2015

We are so proud to have such skilled staff members working for Stratosfare Restaurant and Bar, with our team being awarded a total of 12 medals and a trophy.

Five of our restaurant and bar team members recently competed at the NZChefs National Salon at the Auckland Food Show. The event brought together the country's best chefs, service professionals and bartenders, all battling it out in a variety of cooking, bartending and table service challenges.

Skyline Rotorua general manager, Bruce Thomasen, says the NZChefs National Salon was a great way for the team to demonstrate their skills and be recognised for their excellence.

“We have an amazing team here at Stratosfare who work relentlessly to serve their best to our visitors every day and the Salon served as a celebration of their talent.”

NZChefs is the national association representing professional chefs, cooks, trainees, patissiers and confectioners in New Zealand’s most vibrant and demanding industry.

These awards follow Stratosfare’s recent success at the 2015 Rotorua Hospitality Awards, where they won Outstanding Restaurant, Outstanding Waiter, Outstanding Bartender and Best Emerging Chef.
