Peter Glover, from the Refectory Kitchen Team at Bishop Grosseteste University (BGU), has been nominated to submit a recipe for the 2018 HIT Master Chef Competition as a part of his HIT Master Chef Apprenticeship.
The recipe has to cover three specific requirements in creating a signature dish relevant to the menu at his place of work - Locality, Seasonality and Balance in composition and flavour and must include a 200 word Rationale of the Menu item/Ingredients used and how they have developed the dish.
12 contestants from each region will then be selected by a panel of judges, including HIT Chef Academy leads and industry professionals. These 12 apprentices will then go forward to regional cook-offs.
The winners and runners up of each regional cook-off will go forward to the grand final, which will be held on Wednesday 6th June at Central Street Cookery School, St Luke’s, London. Here, the finalists will have just one hour to plan and five hours to cook their way to victory, with the chance to win the much-coveted HIT MasterChef trophy as well as a set of knives and other prizes.
John Hodson, Operations Manager at BG Lincoln Ltd., was delighted for Peter and congratulated him on his achievement:
“This is well deserved recognition for Peter as he looks to cement his skill set with a qualification through the Apprenticeship programme and we would like to wish him every success as the competition progresses.”
