Enterprising Alan finds recipe for success 

TV chef Alan Coxon has been named the top entrepreneur in the Midlands. 
The Evesham-based businessman won the title of Midlands Entrepreneur of the Year at the 2012 Midlands Business Awards, held on Friday 3 February at the NEC Hilton Metropole Hotel.

He beat off the challenge of four other finalists to scoop the award. 

 “I am really delighted and honoured to have had my efforts recognised,” said Alan, who has recently returned to the television screens. “It makes all the hard work by me and the whole of my team, including my family, worthwhile.

“Winning on your home patch has a special resonance and the business will remain firmly anchored in Evesham.” 
Alan, who received his award from sponsor Nick Aston of Prosser Knowles, has built up his Coxon’s Kitchen business and has established a reputation as one of the world’s favourite TV chefs and presenters, with exceptional culinary talent and an unparalleled knowledge for the earliest origins of ingredients.

Alan has worked in Michelin star restaurants, written three cook books and created a multi award winning historic food range, with the creation of the 15th century Ale-Gar range of vinegars. 

This is the sixth year that the awards, organised by Leamington Spa-based UK Special Events, have taken place.
Its MD Harj Sandher said: “We are delighted with the quality of the entrants this year and very pleased for Alan.”

Taste of Normandy 2011 - 08/08/11
 On Wednesday 7th September, Stationers’ Hall in central London will be the venue for this year’s Norman gastronomic extravaganza.

Michelin starred chefs and local producers alike will be showcasing the depth and diversity of Normandy’s regional produce and will unveil specially conceived dishes for this medieval-inspired event.

2011 sees the region mark the 1100th anniversary of the creation of Normandy as we know it today and this year’s Taste of Normandy will serve as the perfect occasion for the British press and media to join in the festivities and celebrate the joint history of the two nations. 

Each of the Norman producers and chefs will present their specially created signature dish or cocktail and just some of the delicacies on the menu are set to include anything from salt-marsh lamb and edible plants to champagne soup and foie-gras ice cream…not to mention the Calvados cocktails!

Guest host and celebrity chef Alan Coxon will also be on hand to delve deeper into the medieval origins of the ingredients.

After two successful previous editions in 2007 and 2009, this year’s Taste of Normandy is set to be bigger, better and more delicious than ever before, confirming the region’s place on the gastronomic map of France.For Press and medias only.
