Leading industry chefs meet to decide International Chef of the Year winner

Written by: Edward Waddell
A number of senior Craft Guild of Chefs members including vice presidents David Mulcahy and Steve Munkley met with leading industry chefs Gary Jones, Henri Brosi, Gareth Bowen and Martyn Nail at the Dorchester Hotel to debate who should win the International Chef of the Year Award.

The International Chef of the Year Award, which is sponsored by Cunard, is only presented once every five years at the Craft Guild of Chefs Awards ceremony. The last time this award was presented was in 2018 to Alain Ducasse, on the 25th anniversary of the awards.

Voting had been gathered from other top chefs including Clare Smyth and Chris Galvin and after much debate the group unanimously agreed who the award should be presented to. 

The winner will be announced nearer to the awards which take place on Monday 24th June 2024 at The Grosvenor House Hotel.  

Nominations are still open for other categories, so visit and put forward your colleagues and peers for the highest recognition in the UK chefs industry in one of the 14 categories that comprehensively cover chefs from all backgrounds.
