Who will be crowned the best chef in Suffolk?
Judges put six chefs to the test in the Eat Suffolk Food and Drink Awards 2018 cook-off.
Six chefs went head to head this afternoon (Thursday, April 5) in the battle to be named the best chef in Suffolk.
Dave Wall, of The Unruly Pig, Mauli Dwivedi of The Turk’s Head, Luke Cornelius of The Angel in Bury St Edmunds, Justin Kett of The Swan in Lavenham, Brian Powlett of The Knife of Brian and James Barber of The White Lion Hotel in Aldeburgh competed in the kitchens of West Suffolk College’s Edmunds restaurant.
After a surprise omelette challenge, the chefs produced three courses for a panel of judges including Richard Bainbridge of Benedicts Restaurant, Norwich, Eat editor Charlotte Smith-Jarvis, and category sponsor Jam Tartz.
The six chefs will be whittled down to four finalists, with the winner of Suffolk Chef of the Year being announced at a glittering evening ceremony at Wherstead Park on April 30.
If you want to experience the awards first-hand and mingle with some of Suffolk’s finest food and drink producers and purveyors, tickets are currently being sold for the event.
The evening begins at 6.30pm with a drinks reception, before a three course dinner with wine on the table is served, preceding the awards. Book your place (£65pp plus VAT) by emailing Stephanie.email@example.com
