The chef at a Halifax school has spoken of his pride after being crowned BBC Cook of the Year.

Tony Mulgrew, who is heads up the in-house catering department at Ravenscliffe High School, was presented with his award by TV chef Jamie Oliver at the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards.

Mr Mulgrew said : “To be nominated and shortlisted for this award, knowing that your peers are putting you forward, is quite humbling.

“But to win is the acknowledgement that your peers and others in your field can see the importance in the work that you do.”

Mr Mulgrew received the award for his “inspirational approach to food at the school working closely with his catering tea”. As well as serving dishes such as chorizo and squid pasta, he has also helped set up a training kitchen to provide pupils with the opportunity to learn valuable catering and hospitality skills.

Mr Mulgrew thanked the judges, his catering team and Jeanette Orrey, co-founder of the Food for Life Partnership.
