Brian Maule crowned Scottish Chef of the Year
Mon, 04 Jun 2012
Awarded for his work at Glasgow’s Chardon d’Or restaurant, he beat Dominic Jack of Castle Terrace in Edinburgh, Graeme Pallister of Perth’s 63 Tay Street and Adam Stokes of Glenapp Castle in Ayrshire & Arran to win the main accolade at the glittering awards ceremony at the Glasgow Hilton.
At the age of just 24, Maule was named the Head chef at the Roux Brother’s legendary Michelin-starred restaurant, La Gavroche, in London (the first Michelin-starred restaurant in the UK), before he opened the French-style Chardon d’Or in 2001.
Other establishments recognised by the awards included Edinburgh’s 21212 which took home the Restaurant of the Year prize. Owned and run by last year’s Chef of the Year Paul Kitching, it finished ahead of Martin Wishart’s self-named restaurant at Cameron House on Loch Lomond and Castle Terrace.
The Best Newcomer Award went to Craig Miller @ 16 West End in St Monans, Fife, with two new Edinburgh restaurants as runners up; Wishart’s brasserie The Honours in the New Town and Mithas in Leith.
