London and South East - Dessert
This week it is the turn of three chefs from London and south east England. 2017’s banquet champion Selin Kiazim, a rising star of the London scene renowned for her Turkish Cypriot fusion flavours, is back hoping to join the elite group of chefs who have made it to the banquet twice. She is up against James Cochran, who has worked at some of London’s toughest kitchens, including two Michelin-starred The Ledbury, and Scott Goss from The Twenty Six in Tunbridge Wells, renowned for his use of local Kent ingredients.
It is the last chance for the chefs to secure a place cooking for the judges and the pressure in the kitchen is rising as they attempt their technical desserts. 2017’s dessert banquet champion Selin puts her own unique twist on tea and toast. James creates a decadent coconut parfait accompanied by mango puree-filled doughnuts for his dessert ‘Tree of Life’ inspired by the coconut palm tree, the NHS and both of their contributions to the public’s health. Meanwhile, Scott hopes his elevated gypsy tart ‘Honey Bee Good’ will secure him a place in the final. With only the two highest scorers going through to tomorrow’s regional final, who will be sent home?
