Raymond and the whole team at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons are delighted to announce that Christine Peace and Richard Phillips both won in the Pastry Category and Jean-Marie Messaoud was a winner in the Service Category.
Following Finals held at Le Gavroche, Le Colombier, The Gleneagles Hotel and Thames Valley University, the Academy of Culinary Arts is pleased to announce the winners of the Annual Awards of Excellence.
Pastry finalists had five hours to produce eight individual savarins aux oranges; a modern interpretation of a Black Forest Gateau; Nougat de Montelimar and a nougatine stand.
Service finalists were required to decant and describe wines to the judging panel and to set up and serve a three course meal with wines and liqueurs to a table of two guest judges.
The winning candidates will be invited to a Gala Presentation Dinner later in the year to be presented with their award.
