Head Chef Ray gets to finals of Robert Linsley Challenge

Head Chef Ray gets to finals of The Robert Linsley Chef’s Challenge

Last Friday I accompanied the Club's Head Chef, Ray Thompson to Westminster Kingsway College. Ray had taken part in The Robert Linsley Chef's Challenge and to get this far has been quite an achievement. A total of 137 Clubs entered the competition and Ray managed to get to the finals as one of only ten remaining chefs.

The challenge, in a tense kitchen, was to cook the classic Sole Veronique, followed by a dish of Ray's choice which was Wild Duck Breast with Pumpkin Puree, Wild Mushrooms, Fondant, Savoy Cabbage, Crispy Bacon and Duck Jus (pictured).

Ray had done so well to get into the final ten, and even better news was that he was awarded third place overall. Ray should be very proud of what he has achieved in this tough competition, which additionally was a great advertisement for the high standards he regularly sets at the Club.
