Michelin Guide Great Britain & Ireland 2022: Blancpain presents the 2022 Mentor Chef Award to Philip Howard
On this occasion, Blancpain was delighted to honour the British chef Philip Howard with the 2022 Mentor Chef Award, in recognition of his dedication to passing on his own knowledge to a new generation of chefs. Often referred to as a "chef's chef", Philip Howard has seen many young talents and successful chefs pass through his kitchen, showing the important role he played in forging their careers.
After spending 25 years at the head of the famous two-star restaurant The Square, Philip Howard opened Elystan Street in Chelsea in 2016, where he pleases his guests by focusing on great seasonal ingredients, prepared with care and understanding. The desire to cook simpler food prevails with a great emphasis on pure, clean and light dishes – full of vitality and flavour.
