Have your say on which group exec chefs are leaders in their field

Cooking in kitchen

There are just a few more days to go until the nomination deadline for the 2019 FEJ Awards – and one of the categories that we’re inviting recommendations for is the ‘Group Executive Chef of the Year’.

Open to group exec chefs, food & beverage directors and individuals in senior food development roles, the award last year was won by Glenn Evans of Las Iguanas.

Chris Knights of Young’s & Geronimo Pubs, Mike Lewis of YO! Sushi, Rob Mitchell of Drake & Morgan and Simon Xavier of Chiquito were also all deservedly shortlisted.

Whether it is restaurants, pubs, care homes, contract caterers or any other professional foodservice business, the group executive chef has one of the most important roles to play when it comes to what happens on a kitchen level.

From creative menu development and food sourcing to kitchen specification and roll-outs, this accolade honours those individuals that are excelling in their posts.

So if you know somebody whose name deserves to be up in lights at the FEJ Awards on Tuesday June 4, please email or submit an official nomination form, which you can download HERE.

The ‘Group Executive Chef of the Year’ category applies to individuals who hold that specific job title or an equivalent role within their organisation.

The FEJ Awards take place on Tuesday 4 June, the first night of the Commercial Kitchen show, at the Birmingham Metropole.
