The British Beer & Pub Association (BBPA), along with the All Party Parliamentary Beer Group and Nestlé Professional, has launched a new award to recognise the nation’s pub chefs.

The Parliamentary Pub Chef of the Year award will see MPs nominate pub chefs in their constituencies for judging by a panel of experts.

Brigid Simmonds, chief executive of the BBPA, said: “A career as a pub chef is exciting and demanding and it offers young people development, rewards and a great working environment.

“Pubs are increasingly serving very high quality food and for ambitious chefs, it’s a great chance to quickly take control of your own kitchen – I think it is time we recognise the efforts of superb chefs up and down the country and I am delighted that Members of Parliament can get involved by nominating great food in pubs in their constituency.”

The winner of the Parliamentary Pub Chef of the Year award will be announced early next year.

The BBPA recently launched new initiative Pub Chef Passion alongside the British Institute of Innkeepers (BII) and Perceptions Group, aimed at encouraging more young people into the sector at a time when there is an industry-wide shortage of skilled chefs.
