South Cumbria chef wins national final of acclaimed cookery contest

A SOUTH Cumbria chef has come out on top in a national final of one of the industry's most acclaimed cookery competitions.

Tom Barnes, of L'Enclume, Cartmel, beat five other finalists to win the Roux Scholarship.

Mr Barnes has been competing at Westminster Kingsway College, in London today.

Thirty minutes before the start of the competition the finalists were given a recipe and ingredients for a main dish, either classic or modern and asked to prepare and present it to judges, including top chefs such as Alain Roux.

Mr Barnes will receive £5,000, courtesy of the Savoy Educational Trust, to support his career development, and an invitation to cook and train under the supervision of a leading chef at a prestigious three-star Michelin restaurant anywhere in the world for up to three months.

The winner was decided this evening at the Mandarin Oriental, London.
