Sat Bains to receive honorary doctorate

Sat Bains, chef-patron of the Michelin-starred Restaurant Sat Bains with Rooms in Nottingham, is to receive an Honorary Doctorate of Professional Practice by the University of Derby Buxton.

The former Catey Menu of the Year winner will be awarded the prestigious accolade in recognition of his support of local suppliers and selected artisan producers and placing the East Midlands on the culinary map both nationally and internationally.

He will receive the Honorary Doctorate at a ceremony held at the university's Devonshire Dome on 4 December.

Bains told Caterersearch it was a great honour to receive the doctorate. "It's very humbling," he said. "Anyone who knows me will know that I'm not a particularly academic person, so it's a bit of a shock to the system."

He added: "It is such an honour and all the more significant that it should come from the university of my home town."

A former Roux Scholar, Bains first opened his restaurant on the outskirts of Nottingham in 2002, winning a Michelin star the following year. He achieved the AA's top accolade of five rosettes in 2009.
