British Culinary Federation Chairman's Award presented to Nigel Crane of Essential Cuisine

Nigel Crane, chef founder and managing director of stocks and sauces manufacturer Essential Cuisine has been awarded the British Culinary Federation's chairman's award.

Presented at the British Culinary Awards (BCF) dinner, at Birmingham's Botanical Gardens last Sunday, BCF chairman Matt Davies handed over the award and paid tribute to the chef and the impact he has had both on the industry and on those working within it.

Davies said: "From humble beginnings at catering college via the Berkeley, Britannia, Waldorf, and Westbury, to hitting the high standards of the Dorchester, right through to his standing today at the helm of Essential Cuisine, this award is testament to one hell of a career!

"Nigel has always held the BCF close to his heart, and his tireless work to develop the careers of young chefs, not just here but in the wider industry, is worthy of celebration. Congratulations, chef. Thank you for all you've done and continue to do."
