Read time: approx 1 mins

Mathew Shropshall, Chef Lecturer at UCB’s College of Food, has won the esteemed title of ‘Chef Lecturer of the Year’ at the Annual Craft Guild of Chefs Awards.

The Awards ceremony, which has been widely dubbed the “Oscars of the cheffing world”, recognises the hospitality industry’s leading talent across the board, with categories ranging from those working within the Armed Services to Contract Catering.

Triumphant winner Mathew described himself as “honoured” to have beaten such tough competition among contestants for the Chef Lecturer of the Year Category, which considers nominations for any individual whose primary job is in the teaching and development of chefs at all levels from any sector of the industry. Successful candidates are described by the Craft Guild of Chefs (CGC) as having shown “a commitment to others over and above their daily responsibilities” – in this case awarding Mathew’s unwavering dedication to the Professional Cookery students he teaches at UCB.

In a final word about the evening, Mathew said:

“I had an amazing night at the Westminster Crown Plaza last week and was absolutely delighted to receive an award considering the competition. In fact, just to be in a room with so many prestigious chefs under consideration by the CGC was incredible.”
