BWG Foodservice to sponsor Chef of the Year award
Irish Restaurant Awards look forward to celebrating the best of hospitality now that the sector has reopened
14 June 2022
BWG Foodservice is to sponsor the Chef of the Year category in this year’s Irish Restaurant Awards.
This is the 13th year of the awards, which ceased midway in early 2020 due to the pandemic, and this year’s awards look forward to celebrating the best of hospitality now that the sector has reopened
As with previous years the Irish Restaurant Awards process begins with an online public vote hosted via the Irish Times. This is followed by the judging process of national experts, followed by regional events in the four provinces at which county winners will be announced, a Dublin shortlist and culminating in the All-Ireland Irish Restaurant Final. There are 21 categories in total with the BWG Foodservice sponsored ‘Chef of the Year’ category always hotly contested.
Ricky O’Brien, BWG Foodservice director said: “As we warm-up for the summer months, it is opportune to celebrate our wonderful industry and, in particular, the extraordinary chefs who are the true stars of the Foodservice industry. At BWG Foodservice, we are delighted to have the opportunity to publicly pay homage to their craft. It is rare you get the opportunity to make a statement as public as we believe sponsoring the Chef of the Year award does.
“One of our driving motivations is to provide chefs with the best of raw materials and ingredients so that they weave their magic and create spectacular dishes for their customers. We understand all that goes into this and, through sponsorship of this prestigious award, we can show that support in a public and meaningful way.”
