Brent Knoll chef wins prestigious award at London ceremony

A Brent Knoll resident has been presented with a prestigious award at The Craft Guild of Chefs Awards 2016 in London.

Scott Pring, who has been head chef at Bridgwater College for 15 years, received the Public Sector Chef Award at the awards ceremony.

He was shortlisted as one of three finalists from the public sector after being chosen from a large number of nominations from catering arenas including hospitals, prisons, educations, military, public and social services and staff restaurants.

Known as the Chefs Oscars, the Guild of Chef Awards recognise and reward the hospitality industry's leading talent across all sectors.

Scott said: "I am exceptionally proud to have won such a prestigious award. It was a fantastic evening and wonderful to spend time with my peers and heroes of the catering profession."

"This is the third year that I have been shortlisted for this award so it's a real honour to have won."

"To win a Craft Guild award and jacket is one of the highest accolades that can be bestowed upon a chef and I am truly honoured."

"I would like to thank my line manager, Diana Bright, who nominated me for this award and Bridgwater College who have employed and supported me for the last 15 years."

Seventeen awards were presented on the night, ranging from young and apprentice chefs to pub and restaurant chefs.

Specialist sectors such as pastry, public sector and ethnic chefs were also recognised.
