The Craft Guild of Chefs has announced the launch of a new mentor program with Chris Galvin and many notable names including Anton Edelmann and Sarah Hartnett already signed up as a mentor.
With the challenges of Covid-19 still affecting the hospitality industry, the association said the timing was right to launch a scheme to support chefs who are seeking to develop their careers. Andrew Bennett, chair of the Craft Guild of Chefs, said: “Members of the Craft Guild of Chefs benefit from years of experience and I know our mentors will take a lot of pleasure in giving back and using their expertise to boost the careers of fellow chefs. Whether the mentee is a commis chef looking to take the next step on the ladder, or a sous chef looking for advice on advancing to the role of head chef, our mentor scheme should offer a valuable boost.”
Chris Galvin, chef-patron of Galvin Restaurants, added: “I’m delighted that the Craft Guild of Chefs has decided to launch a mentorship scheme to support chefs across the industry. There’s never been a more important time for chefs to come together than there is right now.”
Interested members can apply to be mentored by sending an email to email@example.com and there are no limitations on who can apply. The Craft Guild in conjunction with the mentors will seek to place the right mentor with the appropriate mentee.
