Stephen Griffiths Chefs cuisine and Harlech foods Development Chef & Fine Food Specialist... "I joined Harlech in November 2015. Having been in the hospitality industry since I was 16, I had my first head chef’s role at the age of 20. In 2000 I won ‘Mid WalesTrainee Chef of the Year’ and was only one of two people in Wales to complete the level 4 NVQ in kitchen & Larder.In 2008 I purchased a leasehold in an established and successful local pub & restaurant in my home town of Welshpool for 4 years. Then is was given the opportunity to join a work based learning company as an assessor, internal verifier and trainer of chefs all over Wales, where I developed a wide range of contacts and knowledge of different genres of the hospitality industry.This also gave me the opportunity to join the Welsh Culinary Association and was part of the 2014 winning team at the prestigious ‘Battle of the Dragon’ championships.This also led me to be part of the Welsh Culinary squad that was part of the recent Culinary Olympics in Erfurt, Germany. We as a team at Harlech want to develop new, innovative, exciting, modern styles and products that can help chefs with ranges that suits all needs. As well as encourage new talent and enthusiasm to the industry.
