Prue Leith Chefs, don’t just achieve consistency, discipline and a great love of food in the time they study at the Institute, but they continue to live it and excel.

In 2020 we launched our first Alumni Awards to celebrate the continued culinary excellence of our alumni.

The Distinguished Alumni Awards are held every two or three years coinciding with the visit by our patron, Dame Prue Leith, who presents the awards.
