Meadowhall launches ‘Master Sheff’ competition
Published: 08 February, 2012
Meadowhall has launched the ‘Master Sheff’ competition in celebration of its newly revamped Oasis Dining Quarter.
Trainee chefs from the centre’s extensive restaurant portfolio have been tasked with creating innovative new dishes in line with their restaurant’s culinary themes. Eight chefs are taking part from restaurants Las Iguanas, Wagamama, Handmade Burger Co and La Tasca among others.
TV chefs John Torode and Gregg Wallace will crown the ultimate winner after tasting each of the dishes and interviewing all of the finalists in centre on Wednesday 15 February. The winning dish will be chosen for its relevance to the brand, creativity, taste and presentation.
The winner will be awarded the exclusive ‘Master Sheff’ trophy and be given an opportunity to put their winning dish on the menu.
Meadowhall centre director, Darren Pearce, said: “It’s great to see so many of our up-and-coming chefs getting on board. They’re all cooking on gas already – I can’t wait to see what they come up with and hear what Gregg and John have to say!”
The Oasis Dining Quarter, a £7m re-development, opened in October last year and includes a new restaurant mezzanine and gourmet outlets.
