A Perth-based chef has joined an elite group with his appointment as a Master Chef of Great Britain.
Caf Tabou’s executive chef and co-owner, Marek Michalak, is one of only around 250 chefs throughout the UK to hold the honour and the first Polish chef to be appointed.
The Master Chefs of Great Britain was formed with the aims of not only providing chefs with the opportunity to exchange ideas but also to further the profession through the training and guidance of young chefs. It has been in existence for around 35 years and members include Nick Nairn, Bruce Sangster and Tony Singh.
“I’ve been hoping to gain the Master Chefs of GB title for some time now it’s been a passion of mine to obtain such a prestigious title which is approved by leading fellow chefs,” said Mr Michalak.
“It’s a wonderful feeling to be recognised personally within your industry sector.” His accreditation was announced at Caf Tabou’s recent Scotch Beef Dinner where diners included Jamie Scott, winner of BBC’s Masterchef: the Professionals 2014.
