Nigel Haworth honoured with Special Award at Craft Guild of Chef’s Awards
Nigel has been honoured with the Special Award at the Craft Guild of Chef’s Awards, a glittering, black tie event, recognising key figures in the UK chef industry at the Plazza Westminster Bridge in London, last week. Established in 1965 as a Guild of the Cookery and Food Association, the Craft guild of Chefs has developed into the leading chef’s Association and has many members worldwide.
“It’s an amazing industry that we’re part of. It’s an amazing privilege to have worked in it. I’m very, very proud to be given this award. For everybody that’s coming into the industry: it’s a very, very rewarding job, it’s an amazing career and I hope that we can keep encouraging young people to keep coming in, developing and enjoying the job” Nigel Haworth.
Other winners included 2017 Acorn Award winner Gordon Stott of the Sun Inn, who won the Pub Chef award; and Cpl Ian Mark from the Royal Air Force who scooped the Armed Services Chef Award just days after having been announced the winner of this year’s Great British Bake-Off: Crème de la Crème. Vineet Bhatia London was awarded New Restaurant of the Year after having relaunched late last year, and the Clink Charity and Restaurants was given the Innovation Award.
