A priceless opportunity for mentoring by senior members of the hospitality industry; the chance to attend Réunion des Gastronome events, a range of bespoke industry-based development experiences and two year’s complimentary Associate membership of the organisation.   These are the prizes on offer to the winner of the Gastronomes Award 2022.  This organisation, (believed to be the oldest culinary organisation in the UK) has members from many sectors of the hospitality industry, including hotels, clubs, caterers, sports stadia, universities, event companies and consultants.

All the finalists will receive an invitation to attend the Gastronome’s annual Grouse Supper on Monday September 26 prior to the judging panel’s final decision. They will also each receive an invitation for them (and guest) to attend the Annual Banquet on Friday 4 November, when the winner will be announced. The remaining finalists will receive certificates, and an invitation to become an Associate Member of the Réunion des Gastronomes.

The award is easy to enter – all that is required is completion of a written application form by the applicant; submission of a current curriculum vita; a couple of additional endorsements from their employer and another industry professional, and written responses to four simple questions.

The Award is open to anyone working full-time at a team management level or above, in food and beverage services in the hospitality industry, within the United Kingdom. Closing date for applications is Friday 5 August 2022.  Full details are available on the Réunion des Gastronomes Website at:
