We are delighted to announce that our founder and Managing Director Jon Warren has been awarded a prize on behalf of his company San Sebastian Food for services to gastronomy in San Sebastian.
The prestigious Glutton Club Award for business was presented at a gala dinner attended by over 100 guests at Restaurant Ni Neu in San Sebastian on 13th December 2013.
The founders of The Glutton Club, Xabier de la Maza and Andoni Munduate awarded the prize to Jon Warren, San Sebastian Food creator in recognition to his work in promoting San Sebastian as a gastronomic destination.
“Through his company San Sebastian Food, Jon Warren has helped put San Sebastian on the gastronomic map.” said Andoni, who presented the award at the closing stages of the annual dinner. “It can be easily said, but such actions take a lot of time, a lot of work and of course a lot of talent.”
Jon was delighted to accept the award and gave a short speech, thanking the Glutton Club and dedicating the award to his wife, Nicole, for her long suffering support of his projects and her help over the six years he has lived in the Basque Country.
Other awards were presented including a personal award to one of Jons close friends Marti Kilpatrick for her blog and continued support of gastronomic projects in the city.
The Glutton Club is a society focused in enjoying and learning about gastronomy and culture. In 2012, they opened a pop up bakery on the River Urumea and organise year round culinary and cultural events and concerts. To read more about the award or the Glutton Club, click here.
