Philip Howard from the two Michelin-starred The Square restaurant was yesterday awarded the top accolade at the Craft Guild of Chefs annual awards ceremony, joining another 14 chefs who were recognised for their culinary contribution.

The annual awards, held last night at Westminster Park Plaza Hotel, seek to recognise the greatest culinary talent across all sectors of the hospitality industry.

Commenting on receiving the night’s top prize, the Special Award, Howard said: “I feel to my core that I was lucky to find something I was incredibly passionate about. I had no real direction in my life, but when I started cooking I knew so quickly in every cell of my body that this was what I was born to do. It’s been a journey of endless surprise and huge challenges.”
