Well, the countdown has well and truly begun - in less than two weeks we’ll be in Lyon, hours away from the biggest professional challenge of our lives!
Despite spending the last few months in the Bocuse d’Or kitchen, there is nothing that can really prepare us for the finals on the 30th of this month. The closest we’ve ever been were the European finals in Brussels, where we really enjoyed the buzz, we’re hoping that Lyon will offer more of the same.
Jodi Hinds, the official Bocuse d’Or UK photographer spent the day with us on Monday, taking photos for the menu. She has a fantastic eye for food and really helps to show off each of the garnishes to their full potential. However, these are the only teasers I’m happy to show for the time being....
This week we kick off the invited run throughs at University College Birmingham, where we’re inviting supporters to come along to see and taste my menu. We have a few places left so if you’d like to join us please contact Julie Kendall.
