South West Chef of the Year – Young Professional Semi Finals…. Update

Many congratulations to Nathan Cornwell from Lucknam Park, Bath, who was awarded the prestigious title of South West Chef of the Year. Unfortunately Dom didn’t make it through to the finals but he did himself proud and produced a fantastic dish amongst very tough competition.

For the final, the chefs were asked to prepare a main course and dessert for two using the ingredients of a mystery box presented to them just 30 minutes before the competition!  Nathan produced two dishes of roast loin of venison, squash purée, Savoy greens, red wine shallots, blackberries and girolles, followed by milk chocolate panna cotta, poached pears, chocolate powder and caramelised walnuts saw him take the title in an extremely close Young Professional class in which the standard of cooking from all finalists was exceptional
