- NEWS & CHAT
On Wednesday 18th April 2018, The Association of Catering Excellence was once again at Lloyd’s of London for the popular annual Quiz Night, a firm favourite in the ACE calendar with 36 teams and over 240 people from the catering & hospitality industry taking part.
This year, the quiz was won by Restaurant Associates. The team of 6 won the Sheila Mitchell Quiz Trophy and a bottle of champagne each.
For the first time there was a runners’ up prize which was won by Vacherin (pictured below), and bringing up the rear in joint third place were Blue Apple and Accent.
ACE Chair, Gaye Bullard said:
“We all love Quiz Night, with teams from across the hospitality industry joining in. It’s a really fun and relaxed evening where everyone can take part, and of course there’s always a bit of friendly banter between the teams. The purpose of ACE is to bring people together at fun events to meet, connect and build new relationships. It’s about getting out from behind the emails!”
Quiz rounds included: Food Critics, Plants, Wine, Anagrams, Energy and the much anticipated music round!
Hosting staff from Evolve Hospitality welcomed and directed guests, and collected the quiz papers.
The raffle raised £1,134 which will go to the Wiggly Worm charity.
