The Rotary Club of Kingaroy is very pleased to announce that the Pride of Workmanship Award for April was made to Jason Ford – chef, teacher, mentor, blogger and businessman.

Jason was nominated by Tina Torrens who said in her nomination:  “You’ve only got to visit his website,, to see how committed Jason is to the South Burnett, to the food industry, to local business, his TAFE students and the many chefs who have trained under and alongside him.”

Jason said he was honoured to receive the award and he generously acknowledged that there were many others who contributed to his success.

Rotary is promoting Pride of Workmanship to local businesses through the theme of “Do it once – do it well” to help employees and business owners achieve the goal of job satisfaction.
