Sally Clarke has been awarded an MBE in her 25th year in business.
In the year that marks a quarter of a century for Sally Clarke’s Notting Hill restaurant, Clarke’s, the renowned chef and restaurateur, who operates a delicatessen and bakery nextdoor to her restaurant, has been included in the Queen’s Birthday Honours List 2009 for her services to hospitality.
Clarke said: “Of course I feel incredibly honoured by this but it’s not only for me it’s for the staff, both past and present, who have worked alongside me and our loyal customers without whom Clarke’s would not have become what it is today. I am also immensely grateful for the loving support of my family throughout my career.”
Delia Smith was also recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours and has been made a CBE.
