Entries are being sought for the highly sought-after 2015 Craft Guild of Chef's Awards. Recognising both emerging and well-established talent from across the industry, the fiercely contested awards will be one of the highlights of the Craft Guild of Chef's calendar, which sees the respected organisation celebrate its 50th anniversary this year.
All nominations must be submitted by 27 February with the exception of the New Restaurant of the Year Award and the Concept & Innovation Award, which both have a deadline of 13 February.
Last year's winners included Eric Chavot, Paul Kitching of 21212 in Edinburgh, Andrew Pern of the Star Inn in Harome and New Restaurant of the Year Gymkhana.
To commemorate the guild's 50th anniversary, this year's ceremony will take place at the London Hilton on Park Lane on 10 June. The guild's Royal Patron, HRH the Countess of Wessex GCVO, will be in attendance to mark the special occasion, along with 800 professionals and a selection of industry luminaries.
