Craft Guild extends deadline for nominations of culinary heroes

17 Jun 2021
The Craft Guild of Chefs has changed their awards for 2021 to recognise the work of chefs across the country who have put their community and others first during the Covid-19 pandemic.

With lockdown now easing and many only having recently returned to their roles post-furlough, we have received a number of requests to extend the nomination deadline so entries can be completed - you now have until Wednesday 30th June to nominate your culinary hero.

A culinary hero is an individual or a team that has worked tirelessly and selflessly in adversity, supported their community or keyworkers or perhaps provided a charitable service of support.

Whatever they have done in the last 18 months, we want to hear from you to ensure they get the recognition they deserve both for themselves and the sector they represent.

The 50 people selected by the judges will be invited to attend an exclusive reception at Landing-42 in London on 23 September 2021. At the event the 50 people will be awarded with a special lapel badge of recognition and five years membership to the Craft Guild of Chefs.

Nominated chefs can work anywhere in the industry including:
•    Healthcare
•    Education
•    Public sector including armed forces and prisons
•    Restaurants, pubs or hotels
•    B&I
•    Events and stadia
•    Food Development
