After hundreds of votes were cast by the people of Derbyshire, Chris Mapp and his restaurant The Tickled Trout made it to a final four in each category and were delighted to come away with the double accolade.
Chris told VIBE: “I am extremely humbled to be awarded the Chef of the Year in Derbyshire Life, it was a great surprise to me but I am really pleased. However, winning the restaurant of the year also confirms that I have a fabulous team that helps me and each other achieve excellence in what we do. We are forever learning and evolving but this group I have are just amazing, these awards represent their hard work and they absolutely deserve the recognition.”
