This July, we are pleased to announce that we have received the following awards:
- The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts Annual Awards of Excellence for Gercelynn Mae Dionio & Jade Stevens at Restaurant Hywel Jones
- Best Hotel Chef Mentor for Hywel Jones at The Chef Mentor Awards
The Annual Awards of Excellence is the most prestigious award available to young professionals in the hospitality industry today, recognising and encouraging the most talented ambitious chefs, pastry chefs and waiters. The purpose of the Awards is to inspire and encourage young professionals to achieve the highest possible standards in their chosen profession – Kitchen, Pastry or Service – and to offer them clear guidelines for success in their career.
Claire Randall, Managing Director at Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa, commented: ‘The Awards of Excellence is the most prestigious award available to young professionals in the hospitality industry today. I am delighted for Jade and Mae, whose talent, focus and hard work to achieve the highest possible standards, has been justly rewarded. They should be extremely proud of their achievement’.
The Chef Mentor Awards launched for the first time this year at the Hospitability & Catering Expo, where more than 200 high-profile guests from across the hospitality and catering industry came together to recognise the most inspiring mentors in the sector.
