Pres­ti­gious award for chef lec­turer

Loughborough Echo - - SHEPSHED SCENE -

A LOUGH­BOR­OUGH Col­lege chef lec­turer has been pre­sented with a pres­ti­gious award from the Bri­tish Culi­nary Fed­er­a­tion at a glit­ter­ing cer­e­mony.

Dar­ren Creed re­ceived the Ken Fraser MBE Me­mo­rial Award in recog­ni­tion of his work train­ing, men­tor­ing and en­cour­ag­ing young chefs to progress within the pro­fes­sion.

The col­lege Hos­pi­tal­ity lead, who was a medal win­ner at last year’s In­ter­na­tional Culi­nary Olympics, has been a teacher for more than two decades and has sup­ported a host of stu­dents to­wards na­tional and in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion suc­cess, to work along­side some of the in­dus­try’s lead­ing chefs and in se­cur­ing pres­ti­gious po­si­tions.

Dar­ren said: “When my name was an­nounced and I was called onto the stage I was in com­plete and ut­ter shock.

“I love my job and ev­ery­thing I do is for the stu­dents but to be recog­nised by the trade with a nom­i­na­tion alone was fan­tas­tic but then to win... it re­ally is such an hon­our.”
