Fish and Chip Awards 2014

Cem Oktem named as a finalist in the National Fish and Chip Awards 2014

We’re excited to announce that our very own Cem Oktem is a finalist in the Drywhite Young Fish Frier category of the National Fish and Chip Awards 2014. With finalists from fish and chip shops all over the country and a set of tough judges, it’s a big achievement just to be shortlisted.

The National Fish and Chip Awards recognises only the nation’s top fish and chip businesses. The awards recognises quality, value and choice offered by restaurants nationwide. The Young Fish Frier category celebrates up-and-coming talent while helping to develop the skills of nominees even further.

Cem has already taken part in some gruelling judging to reach this stage, including an intensive day at the National Federation of Fish Friers (NFFF) Training School in Leeds. He’ll now have to excel during a mystery shop and then impress the judges in another skills session. The overall winner for 2014 will be announced in a prestigious London awards ceremony, taking place in January next year.

Best of luck to Cem in the final stages. We’ve all got our fingers crossed.
