Two new inspirational and highly respected Chairs of Judges have been revealed by the Craft Guild of Chefs for the UK’s most prestigious and sought-after culinary titles, National Chef of the Year and Young National Chef of the Year.

Taking over from Paul Airworthiness in is Kenny Atkinson who is Chef Patron at the Michelin-starred restaurant, House of Tides in Newcastle.

Kenny is a well-known face on TV, from his appearances on BBC 2’s The Great British Menu, Saturday Morning with James Martin, Islands to Highlands, Saturday Kitchen, UK Food’s Market Kitchen and Sky TV’s Perfect series.

Chair of Judges for National Chef of the Year, Kenny Atkinson said: “National Chef of the Year is a competition which I have both competed in and judged throughout my career, so to be asked and named Chairman of Judges is an absolute honor. When I think of the names that have judged this prestigious competition over the years it fills me with huge pride, and I have some big shoes to fill. NCOTY is an amazing competition for chefs of all levels to showcase their skills on a platform like no other. I’m looking forward to following the hard work that the previous judges have done to bring a new dynamic to this competition and to help showcase the amazing talent we have in this country.
