Matt Davies became the new chairman of the British Culinary Federation (BCF) this year and he remains fully focused on strengthening ties with the catering industry.
“The BCF is well-established with a strong foundation, a very successful Youth Academy, three very popular competitions in Chef of the Year, Young Chef of the Year and Student Cook & Serve Team Challenge,” he says. “The country is represented by England’s National Culinary Team, both at senior and junior level, with proven success in many competitions both in the UK and around the world.”
When he is not charged with helping UK chef talent flourish, Matt oversees the running of five kitchens owned by Staffordshire-based The Lewis Partnership. Sites operated by the group include the Orangery restaurant at the Moat House in Acton Trussell and the Brasserie at the Swan hotel in Stafford.
With experience gleaned from his early years at the Savoy, followed by eight years working with chef-restaurateur Andreas Antona, Matt’s expertise continues to ensure the operator is regarded as a leading light in the regional hospitality market.
