English’s Chef-off

In May 2017 we set out to celebrate the brightest young chefs in our city, and crown one of them Best Emerging Chef. Cooking live in front of our audience, our six chefs had 25 minutes to prepare and serve their signature dish, before presenting it to our panel of judges. Huge thanks to Michael Bremner, Steven Edwards and Thomas Griffiths, and congratulations Mike White from The Salt Room, our very first champion.

Thanks to our competitors on the day:

  • Liam Thorpe – St Georges
  • Antoni Markiou – The Grand
  • Curtis Weissang – Market
  • Selvin Prez – La Choza
  • Dylan Rees – Drakes of Brighton
  • Mike White – The Salt Room
