Eat to the Beat for Cirque du Soleil
1 February 2010
UK - Eat to the Beat provided catering support for the Cirque Du Soleil's spectacular show Varekai, which took place at the Royal Albert Hall on 5 January 2010. Eat To The Beat joined forces with the CDS touring Kitchen Team - an idea that came originally from Varekai's production manager, Jamie Reilly. Now Jamie's idea has come to fruition. Headed by ETTB event manager, Michele Bearsby-Lewis and CDS kitchen manager, Isabelle Turcot, the team will cater for the CDS during their London residency.
Jamie Reilly commented: "Having an opportunity to collaborate with a company like Eat to the Beat is a privilege to learn new methods of working, new recipes and meeting extraordinary people, this is how, at Cirque du Soleil we remain innovative in all different aspects of our business, from the stage to the Kitchen! I am very pleased to have found with Eat to the Beat the open mindedness to join us in our new venture and for believing in this project."
The catering collaboration provides up to 250 meals every day with a range of healthy energy rich menus. In addition to the set meals a 'Healthy Snack Stop' is available throughout the day, providing high protein, energy rich snacks such as nuts, seeds, fresh juices, smoothies and fruit.
The range of food on offer is extremely varied and includes some French Canadian favourites, and Asian dishes that required ETTB to install a specialist wok burner to ensure the chefs had all the right facilities to cook for their teams.
