The Ayala SquareMeal Female Chef of the Year
Champagne Ayala and SquareMeal are proud to announce that AngelaHartnett is the winner of the first AYALA SquareMeal Female Chef of the Year. The award was launched in August 2018 to celebrate the huge contribution female chefs are making to the UK restaurant industry.
Angela was the clear front-runner in the online poll which saw users cast almost 1,500 votes for their favourite female chefs. Hartnett has been the UK’s most famous female chef since she rose to fame as Ramsay’s voice of reason on Hell’s Kitchen and topping SquareMeal’s poll proves that, 14 years later, she remains the country’s most popular female chef.
Commenting on her win, Hartnett said “It’s so good that there are so many female chefs now. The restaurant trade is changing for the better. If this encourages young girls coming into our industry, then it’s a great thing to do.”
The awards lunch was held at Daphne’s in South Kensington where the guests were fortunate enough to be joined by Ayala Chef de Cave, Caroline Latrive who presented her first vintage blanc de blancs, the Ayala Le Blanc de Blancs 2012.
