The Clink Charity announces chef, writer and regular BBC guest Daniel Galmiche as Group Sustainability Ambassador

Daniel Galmiche
The Clink Charity has welcomed Daniel Galmiche, chef, writer and regular BBC Saturday Kitchen guest, as Group Sustainability Ambassador to support the work of the charity in reducing reoffending rates and provide prisoners in training with educational workshops to expand their hospitality knowledge and experience further.

Galmiche is a long-standing support of The Clink Charity, having held his first training session at The Clink Restaurant at HMP Styal in Cheshire in April 2016 to create a celebratory lunch to mark a hugely successful first year for the restaurant. The Michelin-starred chef has since returned to The Clink Restaurant at HMP Brixton in London for a fundraising dinner in partnership with The Institute of Directors, and more recently a Chaîne des Rôtisseurs dinner held at HMP Styal in October. 

Daniel will dedicate his time towards improving standards and the skills of the chefs in training, ensuring the maintenance of The Clink’s well documented success in reducing re-offending rates. Galmiche is well-invested in fresh tasting foods and cooking methods, embracing his role as a sustainability ambassador to the Norwegian Seafood Council. Within this role Galmiche helps develop recipes and product knowledge whilst introducing beautiful sustainable fish into the retail sector. Daniel is passionate about using ingredients from local and sustainable sources, and has expressed a keen interest in The Clink Gardens, The Clink’s horticulture programme currently in operation at HMP Send, Surrey.

Speaking of his position as Group Sustainability Ambassador, Daniel Galmiche comments, “Sustainable cooking is something I hold close to my heart, and working with The Clink provides the perfect opportunity to educate the next generation of chefs about the versatility of sustainable cooking. I’m honoured to welcome my new role and can’t wait to get in the kitchen with the many talents that I have become accustomed to during my previous experiences working alongside The Clink Charity.

Chris Moore, Chief Executive of The Clink Charity said, “We’re delighted to welcome Daniel to our Ambassadors programme. With over 35 years’ experience in the industry, Daniel brings invaluable knowledge and expertise to the kitchen and his hand-on approach will be of great inspiration to the prisoners in training. Daniel’s achievements in the culinary world are well documented and his appointment will support us as we continue expanding on our training programme and build on our sustainability credentials even further.”

With four prisoner training restaurants currently in operation across Her Majesty’s Prison Estate, alongside The Clink Gardens and Clink Events, the charity is on track to achieve its target of 20 prisoner training projects in operation by the end of 2020. With all four restaurants and Clink Events boasting a three-star Food Made Good rating from the Sustainable Restaurant Association, The Clink Charity goes hand in hand with Daniel’s interests and talents. As a highly valued figure in the industry, Galmiche will aid this expansion not only through raising the profile of the charity, but also through championing The Clink’s mission of rehabilitating prisoners through education.
