Winner Announced!

 
Gareth Brown
A Slice of Heaven
 
 

Gareth was nominated by a colleague, who said of him:

Gareth is an exceptional young man. He has been with the company for 10 years helping to turn it around as in 2007 it was deep in debt and in danger of closing. He started with us as a School-leaver with very few qualifications and now Heads up our bakery. I am delighted to say that the company has gone from strength to strength in that time.

Gareth developed our Irish Tiramisu made with Bailies Irish Cream, and our Luscious Lemon Cheesecake, winning stars at the Great Taste Awards. He also developed "Strawboffee" a new slant on our infamous Banoffee, but using Strawberries, which picked up a Bronze Award at the Blas na H'Eire ann Awards. His Zesty Key Lime Pie has reached the finals of the Irish Food Awards this year. Gareth continues to develop new innovative desserts, salads and traybakes for the Foodservice Market. Slice of Heaven recently secured new business with the rapidly growing coffee chain "Bob and Berts" and have developed new, bespoke ideas for them. We feel that Gareth is a superb Development Chef whose work is most definitely helping to secure great business in difficult economic times.
