Willie Pike given HIT Scotland's Industry Award 2007
Willie Pike, executive chef and head of craft training for Costley and Costley Hoteliers, has won this year's Hospitality Industry Trust (HIT) Scotland Industry Award.
Sponsored by Caterer and food supplier Brakes the accolade goes to the individual deemed to have gone above and beyond what is expected of them in their day-to-day job.
Bob Lamp, chief executive of Brakes commended Pike on his enthusiasm for the profession, which has seen him set up the first Scottish Chefs Conference in 2006.
The HIT Scotland charity dinner, held at the Glasgow Hilton hotel last week, also raised £70,000 to provide student bursaries and scholarships for Emerging Talent.
