Creating food that is tasty and good looking
On the 3rd April 2010, two things happened; Apple released the first iPad and generation Alpha were born. In 2020, these tech-savvy, food aware, eco warriors are heading into secondary schools. For us, this is so exciting! We work exceptionally hard to create environments that are inviting – a place to chat, build relationships and bite down on Instagram-worthy dishes.
But, it is not just what is on the surface that counts – where the food comes from, how the food tastes and the wage paid to the chef who cooked it are just as important.
At Culinera, we disrupt the norm and redefine what adding value actually means.
WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY...
"We chose Culinera for nearly the same reason we didn't! Culinera is a relatively new company compared to the majority of others but showed boundless passion and commitment and aligned perfectly to the ethos of our school. We were convinced our students and staff would get a fabulous dining experience and, we are delighted that we have beenproved right."
