Nominations sought for Craft Guild of Chefs Awards 2009

Nominations for the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards 2009 are now being sought.

Designed to showcase the best young talent, the 13 categories, plus a special award for an overall industry high-flyer, will be announced at a ceremony at London's Hilton on Park Lane on 1 June.

Now in their 16th year, the awards cover all aspects of the chef profession, from education to pubs and cost sector to banqueting, and nominees do not have to be a member of the Guild.

Nick Vadis, chairman of the Craft Guild of Chefs, said, with standards getting higher and higher every year, it was becoming incredibly difficult to choose the rightful winners.

"Last year's champions were truly shining examples of masters of their trade, whatever sector they were in, and this year's contenders have their work cut out to win one of the coveted accolades," said Vadis

The closing date for entries is 27 February.
