Panasonic has announced that Scott Kedwards is to join its team as development chef for professional cooking.
Kedwards’ previous experience includes working for West Bromwich Albion Football Club, Gleneagles Hotel and Turners, a former Michelin-starred restaurant.
A professional chef with over 17 years experience, and a graduate from University College Birmingham with a BA (Hons) in Culinary Arts Management, Scott has also worked for Compass Group’s fine dining arm, Restaurant Associates, has competed successfully in a number of cooking competitions and is a former member of Junior Team England’s culinary team.
Prior to joining Panasonic, Scott was development and demonstration chef for Welbilt so brings with him an innate understanding of the technology that today’s chefs are dealing with day to day. His brief from Panasonic is clear; focus on new and existing customers and offer them support in menu and recipe development. Scott will also be supporting the Panasonic pro-cooking team with customer training, demonstrations and product promotion at trade shows, his first being Casual Dining in September.
Barnaby Sykes, Head of Category Marketing, Panasonic Europe; “These are challenging times for all and there is no sector in foodservice that hasn’t been affected. We’ve always been committed to supporting our end user customers and distributors and want to ensure we can maintain our high levels of customer service with Scott as an integral part of the team in the months and years to come as we make a return back to normality.”
