The Academy of Food and Wine and Service has just agreed to partner with The Art of Service and Caterer and Hotelkeeper to drive forward The Restaurant Project.
Unfortunately because of the school holidays, Bank Holiday weekend and the forthcoming Royal Wedding progresses have been a bit slower than we hoped.
Nick Scade (chairman AFWS), Sophie Roberts-Brown (director AFWS) and I are currently working with our website designers to create a dedicated web page and logo. 
As soon as the site is live we will inform everyone through Caterer and Hotelkeeper (@caterersearch), Table Talk (@TableTalkTweet), The Academy of Food and Wine and Service (@afws), The Art of Service (@TheArtofService) and my own personal twitter (@fredsirieix1) and facebook page.
Many of you have already contacted me to take part in the project and once the (boring but necessary) administration jobs are done we can start to have fun and run sessions across the UK.
Educating and teaching our children the right values, the beauty of excellence and the potential that they each have to be the best is so important. I am delighted we will soon be able to work together to not only change how our profession is perceived but also contribute to creating a better society.
Thank you for your early support and interest. 
Best wishes.
Fred.
