Legendary chef Anton Mosimann is to be inaugurated into Hotelympia's Hall of Fame at next week's show.
The Swiss chef-restaurateur will be interviewed by The Caterer publisher Mark Lewis on day one of the show (29 February) at 11:30am on the Stage.
He will join a roll call of hospitality talent to have been inducted into the Hotelympia Hall of Fame including Raymond Blanc, Terence Conran and Albert and Michel Roux.
"He has also been an important innovator for the industry in terms of initiatives such as the Mosimann Academy and has been rightly lauded for his patronage of schemes such as the Culinary Ability Awards."
Mosimann was the youngest ever maÁ®tre chef des cuisine at the Dorchester when he was 28, gaining two Michelin stars at the hotel in the late 1980s. He opened members' club Mosimann's in London's Belgravia in 1988. In January 2004, Mosimann received an OBE for his commitment to the food and tourism industries.
Hotelympia takes places at ExCeL London from 29 February to 3 March.
