Rhodes to attend Middle East Hozpitality Excellence Awards

Celebrity chef to attend Middle East Hozpitality Excellence Awards

DUBAI, September 11, 2016

Celebrity chef Gary Rhodes OBE has confirmed his attendance at the second Middle East Hozpitality Excellence Awards 2016 in Dubai.

Rhodes is an English restaurateur and chef, known for his love of British cuisine and the distinctive spiked hair style that he once wore.

Gary's career as a writer has been both prolific and highly successful and, to date, he has published over twenty cookery books, including New British Classics, The Complete Cookery Year, Keeping it Simple and 365.  

His television career has been equally successful with series such as Rhodes Around Britain, MasterChef, Masterchef USA , Hell's Kitchen, Rhodes Across INDIA, Rhodes Across China, Rhodes Across the Caribbean, Rhodes Across Italy and, most recently, the BBC series The Great British Food Revival.  As well as owning four restaurants, Rhodes also has his own line of cookware and bread mixes.  In 2006 Gary was honoured with an OBE for services to the hospitality industry.

"Over 300 candidates have entered the race to be nominated as one of the best in their category. We have received over 15,000 votes in the first four weeks of online voting," Raj Bhatt, CEO Hozpitality Group, said. The awards are different as these are popular choice awards for the hospitality industry where selections are purely done on basis of online voting received for various categories. The voters will also have a chance to win an Ipad after they successfully complete the voting.

Nominations have been divided into 2 categories, personal nominations and company nominations.

The Award function in 2016 will take place on December 12 at Dusit Thani Dubai, where more than 400 top industry figures will meet at this spectacular gala dinner said Raj Bhatt, CEO, Hozpitality Group. "The glamorous evening will include a reception, a great meal and excellent entertainment, in addition to the actual awards ceremony," Bhatt added.

The Hozpitality Excellence Awards 2016 will be presented to recognise top industry organisations which have shown skill, creativity, ingenuity and success in the Middle East & North Africa's growing hospitality industry. - TradeArabia News Service
