We're all very chuffed that Ewan Jones has made the the shortlist for 'Young Chef of the Year' at this year's CIS Excellence Awards.

Ewan made his debut at Cafe St Honoré 6 years ago - when he was just 16. Even at that early stage, Cafe’s chef director Neil Forbes could see his potential. He is hard-working, willing to learn and is blessed with a great sense of humour.

Neil wrote a blog featuring Ewan’s story for the Sustainable Restaurant Association - read it here.

He has progressed through all sections with flair and can now run a busy service. He relishes being left to run the kitchen and is very popular amongst the team.

Ewan is a conscientious and reliable young man - quiet but keen. He has developed skills of a very high standard and is now instrumental in keeping the restaurant operating 7 days a week.

He has also learned great life skills and is an inspiration to all the chefs that work with him. At just 22 he is already a very accomplished chef.

We hope Ewan inspires young people to nurture a career in the kitchen!
