Andrew Green, chief executive of the Craft Guild of Chefs, led the tributes to our former chair. Green said: “He was a friend, colleague and an industry luminaire who will be extremely missed.

“A much loved chef and friend to many, he had a successful and full career, mentored many people along their chosen path, and was always full of life, cracking jokes, whilst at the same time being an inspiration to the youth. Andrew undertook much charitable work over the years, raising large sums of money for good causes.”
