The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts’ Annual General Meeting took place on Monday 6th June at Grosvenor House. More than Ninety Academy members met to discuss the year’s successes.
The achievements of 2015-2016 are vast and varied, with fantastic results for the Annual Awards of Excellence, as well as four, soon to be five highly successful apprenticeship programmes and the all-important work of Adopt a School.
Each year at the Annual General Meeting a number of senior Academicians are selected to be invested with a formal Chair to their chosen mentor in recognition of their significant contribution to the Academy and its activities. The purpose of the Investitures is not only to recognise the dedication of the chosen Academicians, but also to remember and acknowledge the importance of our forebears, without whose contribution the hospitality profession would not be what it is today. Invested Academicians are awarded the Fellowship of the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts and are known as Fellows.
This year Hywel Jones, Executive Chef at Lucknam Park has been invested to the chair of Josef Favre.
