Healthy eating and a special diet is something we are all aware of these days. We are constantly being bombarded by the media about what we should and should not eat, so it is important to the Food and Beverage teams here at TLH Leisure Resort that they are able to handle any special requests about diets that come their way.
When I was approached by the Food & Beverage Manager of the Victoria Hotel and asked to do some specialist training on the subject I was only too pleased to oblige. The CIEH (Chartered Institute of Environmental Health) provide a Level 2 course called the Level 2 Award in Healthier Food and Special Diets, which I am qualified to deliver. So I got organised and ordered all the exam papers and handbooks. Over two Fridays I delivered the course to seven of the Food & Beverage team at the Victoria – Barrington, Reda, Beata & Aldona from the Restaurant, Bart & Lauren from the Kitchen and Nikki who is the Assistant Food & Beverage Manager. All of them passed the multiple-choice exam and our picture shows them celebrating with their certificates.
During the course of a year we serve a huge number of meals in our beautiful period restaurant in the Victoria Hotel. Special diets and healthy meal options are so important these days, so it is great that the team at the Victoria are prepared to handle any request that comes their way. Well done to all of them and hopefully the other hotels will follow suit soon!
