Pine’s Siân Buchan named in CODE Hospitality’s 30 Under 30 class of 2022/23

Siân Buchan, co-founder and general manager of Michelin-starred Pine in Northumberland, has been named in CODE Hospitality’s 30 Under 30 class of 2022/23.

The annual 30 Under 30 list shines a light on the next generation in hospitality and showcases what can be achieved in the sector before you turn 30. Now in its seventh year, the list highlights the range of opportunities and career paths available in hospitality – from sustainability managers to head chefs to owning your own business at the age of 21. Previous notable winners include Tommy Banks, Ravneet Gill and Santiago Lasta.

This year, for the first time, there were also three individual award winners from the 30 Under 30 list. The Innovator Award went to Jack Feeny (29), founder of Mise en Plastic, a free manual for chefs on how to cut their environmental impact. Jessica Thompson (26) was awarded the Pioneer Award for opening Mingary Castle on the west coast of Scotland at an impressively young age. Finally, the Inspirational Story Award was jointly presented to Alina Nikulishyna (28) and Sofiia Vystoropska (28) who both fled Ukraine and came to London under the Homes for Ukraine scheme, where they found jobs at the five-star Corinthia hotel.
