Clink founder is international culinary prize finalist.

‘Alberto Crisci, founder of prison restaurant charity The Clink, has been named among the 20 finalists in the Basque Culinary World Prize.’ – Big Hospitality

Meanwhile, The Clink has been named one of the Guardian’s 10 best community run pubs, restaurants and museums in the UK:

‘The idea is simple: teach prisoners to cook and serve good food, and afterwards, employment, rather than reoffending, beckons. It works. Plus the food is excellent and seasonal – confit of sea trout, samphire and sorrel followed by elderflower and strawberry panna cotta, for example. The Clink at Cardiff (there are others at Brixton, High Down and Styal) won the Sustainable Restaurant Association’s three-star award and consistently gathers recommendations.’
