Chef v Chef contest winners cook up success in Bath
Young chefs have been feeling the heat as they battled it out in the kitchen during an annual cookery competition.
The Chef v Chef contest, which is in its eighth year, was held in The Shrubbery restaurant at the City of Bath College and featured 11 professionals trying to make their name in the industry.
They each had two-and-a-half hours to impress the judging panel, which was made up of celebrity chef Martin Blunos, Jonathan Newberry from The Valley Smokehouse in Bristol, and Scott Lucas from The Craft Guild of Chefs.
The winners were Lewis Dixon, from Lumiere in Cheltenham, who was top in the Under 23s category, and Steve Whittaker, from Graze in Bristol, from the Over 23s.

Some of the other competitors included Andrew Campbell, who works at the Royal Crescent Hotel, Hayley Smith, from The Bath Priory Hotel, and Martin Blake, from Homewood Park Hotel.
College catering lecturer Steve Benison said the competition promoted culinary excellence by giving chefs the chance to put their innovative kitchen skills to the test.
He said: “This competition brings to the forefront all the potential stars we have in restaurants in and around Bath.
“It puts us on the culinary map.”
Both winners were given £250 cash, a week’s work placement at a top Michelin-star restaurant and a bottle of champagne.
