Patrons’ Hall of Fame
Many of you may fondly remember the National Restaurateurs’ Dinner, an annual fundraising event founded by Roy Ackerman CBE in 1988, who sadly passed away in May 2017.
The International Restaurateurs’ Dinner is built on the foundations of the last 30 years and Roy Ackerman’s legacy but with the aim to spread the delight further than ever before. We would like to acknowledge the personal contribution many people made to get us to where we are today. With thanks to their continued support we have raised over £1.5 million pounds which has been reinvested, via the various associations back into training and education for our beloved Hospitality Industry.
Several leading lights of the industry are listed below as we recognise their huge support for the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts, The Wine Guild of the United Kingdom and Young Chef Young Waiter.
