Etihad Airways crowns winner of ‘Taste The World’ at Taste of London Festival

ABU DHABI — Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, and one of the main sponsors of the Taste of London Festival, has crowned Dean Parker from The Manor restaurant in London, winner of its Taste the World competition.

The Taste the World Award is presented to one chef who best epitomises Etihad Airways’ food philosophy, a highly-acclaimed culinary offering which constantly pushes the boundaries to provide a superior guest experience.

Each chef was independently judged by a panel consisting of an Etihad Airways Inflight Chef, a culinary expert and a renowned food influencer. The winner earns a trip to the global final to represent London and The Manor at Taste of Abu Dhabi, in November. Dean will compete against 11 other world class chefs selected at local Taste Festivals held throughout 2017.

Dean is head chef of The Manor, Clapham, an independent bistro crafting contemporary British dishes from seasonal, responsibly sourced produce. Since joining, Dean was able to take autonomy of the menu from day one and has been wowing diners with his culinary creations.
