North West Food and Drink Awards 2015

North West Food and Drink Awards 2015


The winner of this category is someone who has devoted themselves to the cause of serving the best possible food within the region.

Sponsored by Robinsons Brewery

Winner: Paul Askew (Art School)

Our Chef of the Year 2015 is not just a cook, albeit one of the best cooks in the business. He’s a food champion, an ambassador for his profession and for his home city and a huge supporter of apprentice schemes dedicated to nurturing young talent to seize the opportunities he has done so much to create.

And just over a year ago - after a hugely successful period as chef director at the highly regarded Hope Street Hotel and London Carriageworks Restaurant - he realised his dream by opening his own fine dining venture to deserved and immediate acclaim.

Our winner is rightly convinced that a culture of good food and top quality hospitality is vital to the wellbeing of any great city and the rapid development of the vibrant dining scene in Liverpool - in which he has played such a major role - is one of the keys to the dramatic regeneration of the great port city in recent years.
