The awards were presented by Lisa Clapham, Director of Lakefield and Professor David Foskett. The ceremony was followed by champagne, canapes and a BBQ provided by Ian Parsons, Business Director for CCS (Continental Chef Supplies).

Family and friends were present at  the successful event including parents who come from abroad to show support and to witness the end of  year successes. Two of our patrons also came to show their support, Giovanni Fontebasso, Vice president and Governor of the Craft Guild of Chefs and Omero Gallucci, development Chef and also from the Craft Guild of Chefs.
