Pantheon Announces Winner of Warming Winter Panini Competition


Pantheon Announces Winner of Warming Winter Panini Competition

Pantheon’s recent Design a Warming Winter Panini competition has been won by chef Mark Hopkinson from Castleford who will shortly be receiving a fabulous Pantheon CPG contact panini grill! Mark had a successful career working with contract caterer Gather & Gather (in fact, he was their Chef of the Year in 2014) before launching his own successful catering establishment.

Comments Stuart Hayes, Pantheon’s sales director who, as an ex-chef, was one of the judges, “Mark’s Banh Mi recipe was really exciting and showed that it’s possible to offer customers something a little different without requiring specialist equipment and ingredients - or a large budget. Everything Mark’s used is readily available from any good wholesaler or high street supermarket.”
