A kosher caterer from London was left open-mouthed this week after being shortlisted for the “Oscars of the catering world”.

Food Story, which catered for Jewish News’ Night of Heroes Awards earlier this year, was named on a short-list of three for ‘Event Caterer of the Year’ at the Foodservice Cateys.

“This service industry award ceremony is considered to be the Oscars of the hospitality sector,” said Food Story managing director Matt Rickard.

“To be shortlisted to the final three is a phenomenal accolade for any caterer given the remarkable number of outstanding entries received by the judges every year, yet to be the first ever kosher caterer to be shortlisted is a massive honour for the team.”

More than 70 judges deliberated over two days to draw up the shortlist, with the ultimate winners to be announced at an event on 12 October at London’s Park Plaza Westminster Bridge hotel.
