2020 has been the toughest year imaginable for many industries, including hospitality. Unfortunately, we could be waiting a little while longer until things return to pre-pandemic conditions. In normal circumstances, Christmas is the busiest time of year for chefs. Despite everything, we are still seeing the camaraderie in kitchens, the skills to adapt to new ways of working, the commitment to loyal customers and the tireless work ethic. These are just some of the qualities that have made chefs across the country true heroes this year.
