Rudding Park’s Consultant Chef, Stephanie Moon, will be seen competing in the new series of The Great British Menu when she represents the North East region on BBC Two at 7:30pm on Monday 23 April.
This year’s challenge is to create a ground-breaking menu fit for Olympic heroes; celebrating the arrival of the London 2012 Olympics and demonstrating the extraordinary Olympian heights the talented chefs can reach.
Stephanie will be representing the North East Region alongside two other chefs who will each cook their own starter, fish dish, main and dessert to impress regular judges Matthew Fort, Oliver Peyton and Prue Leith. The winning chefs from the series will be cooking at a prestigious event at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich. British Olympic legend Sir Steve Redgrave will host the gala event with a glittering guest list of British sporting greats.
Being part of The Great British Menu this year has been an amazing challenge, incredibly hard work yet really good fun. The competition was tough but I loved the experience, particularly as I was able to use local ingredients and even went foraging in the grounds at Rudding Park. Sadly I can’t reveal the result so you will have to tune in!
