Food innovation director David Mulcahy has joined such notable luminaries as internet inventor Sir Tim Berners-Lee, actress Dame Judi Dench and Florence Nightingale in being awarded the historic honour of the Freedom of the City of London.

David, who is responsible for menu creation and the culinary development of some 2,500 chefs working across Sodexo’s UK and Ireland business, earned the recognition for his contribution to culinary excellence in the hospitality industry.

He organises the National Chef of the Year competition, considered the most prestigious culinary accolade in the UK, in his voluntary role as vice-president of the Craft Guild of Chefs, and also co-ordinates Springboard’s FutureChef competition which this year saw almost 10,500 12-16 year olds across the UK compete for the FutureChef title.

David, who himself has won International Culinary Olympic and World Cup Gold awards and is involved in a number of charities, particularly Stop Hunger, said: “I have long been motivated by supporting and developing others, particularly young chef talent of which there is so much across the UK and Ireland. I am very proud of our industry and the good that it does, and very proud of this recognition.”
