SMART'S CREATIVE DIRECTOR, ANGELA HARTNETT NAMED TOP 20 IN DEBRETT'S 500

Tue 27 Jan 2015

For almost 250 years Debrett’s has been recognising people of influence and achievement in British society.  Beginning in 1769 with the Peerage it later expanded to include People of Today, which has developed into a network of over 22,000 people across all walks of life.

The Debrett’s 500 is a positive endorsement and recognition of Britain’s 500 most influential people.  It has been compiled by independent panels of specialists in each field who provided nominations for selection to Debrett’s. It aims to be a truly inspiring group of people.

Influential figures from food and drink

This year, the criteria of the Debrett’s 500 Food list have expanded to include those influential figures in the drink industry as well as famous faces from food. The UK offers more culinary variety than ever before, and new food fads and fashions are forever taking hold. Recipe books regularly top the bestsellers list and cookery programmes occupy prime time slots in the television schedules. The Debrett’s selection includes chefs and restaurateurs, as well as critics and bloggers who currently exert tasteful influence over Britain’s drinkers and diners:

  • A A Gill
  • Alan Yau, OBE
  • Angela Hartnett, MBE
  • Chris Corbin and Jeremy King
  • Ewan Venters
  • Heston Blumenthal, OBE
  • Jamie Oliver, MBE
  • Jason Atherton
  • Jonathan Downey
  • Marina O’Loughlin
  • Martin Dickie and James Watt
  • Mary Berry, CBE
