Renowned chef and restaurateur Daniel Boulud has won the International Outstanding Achievement Award at the Cateys, presented to him at a glittering ceremony at Grosvenor House, a JW Marriott hotel, last night.
Boulud is one of the most revered chefs in the USA and one of France's greatest exports. He owns 17 restaurants worldwide, including seven in New York, the city he has called home for 30 years. He also owns Bar Boulud at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in London.
Speaking at the Cateys awards ceremony last night, he said: "With this award, I really feel welcome…it feels like a true welcome today and I feel included into the family of restaurateurs here in London."
