15 minutes with…Rosalind Mould

Rosalind Mould is the head of procurement at Philip Dennis Foodservice

What was your first job?

While studying Law, Spanish and English at college I was a fishmonger at Waitrose on the 5am shift. I used to arrange the display and then go on to prep fish – oh the glamour!

How would your colleagues at Phillip Dennis describe you?

I actually asked them to answer this and they kindly came back with professional, fair, trusting, organised, driven, good work ethic, high standards and direct. I am sure there was a pain in the ‘wotsit’ in there somewhere.

If you could turn any activity into an Olympic sport that would give you a chance of winning a medal, what would it be?

Cleaning, or drinking Prosecco. I enjoy both and it’s a close call. I find cleaning the house very therapeutic, and I can say the same about drinking Prosecco!

“I would love to learn how to fly a jumbo jet”

If time and money were not an issue, what hobby would you most like to get into?

I would love to learn how to fly a jumbo jet and get a pilot’s licence. Whenever I fly, I love to listen to air traffic control on the journey. I know that must sound really sad, but it’s true!

What would your perfect day involve?

A day with my family, friends and my two cocker spaniels skiing in the French Alps, and having long lunches and dinners with good food and wine.

What is your song of choice at karaoke?

I would never do karaoke, no matter how much Prosecco was involved.

Who would be your four ideal dinner party guests?

Apart from my family, it would have to be Snoop Dogg, Holly Marie Coombs, Alyssa Milano and Brian Krause. I love a bit of Snoop Dogg and Charmed – I am sure it would make for an interesting meal.

What would you cook them?

If I was cooking, it would be a Christmas dinner, but I would most likely get caterers in so I can enjoy the company more.

What fad or trend would you like to see make a comeback?

Although I welcome new trends, the days before mobile phones seem appealing. People are interacting less and less in person.

If you were a superhero, what would you choose as your superpower?

The ability to shimmer through time. I would love to go back to the past and witness historical events. Plus, I’d get to work without a commute.

What do you wish you knew more about?

Lots of things. I feel it’s important that we continue to learn as we go through life, but mainly I would really love to be able to speak most languages fluently.

When was the last time you changed your belief or opinion about something major?

Brexit. I don’t think I need to say anymore.
