A pair of Bermuda chefs have been honoured for their work as kitchen trailblazers.

Herbie Bascome and Fred Ming were presented with Distinguished Service Award plaques at the Bermuda Triangle of Chefs: Past, Present and Future event.

Diallo Rabain, the Minister of Education, presented the men with the awards. He said: “It’s always a pleasure when we get to honour one of our own.”

The event included island and overseas chefs who shared recipes and talked about the latest trends in the industry.

Michiko Campbell, the sous chef at the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club, and Fhonthip Jones, the executive pastry chef at the Hamilton Princess & Beach Club, took part in a panel discussion.

Dennis McIntosh, the executive chef of Grand-A-View Restaurant and Event Place, in Montego Bay, Jamaica, also attended.

The event was part of the Bermuda College Spring Lecture Series.
