Young chef of the year

Keanan Pattison, junior sous chef at Rockliffe Hall’s Clubhouse restaurant, has been crowned North East Young Chef of the Year for 2018. The 21-year-old was one of seven finalists to compete for the title at the Lancastrian Suite, Gateshead.

Organised by the North East Culinary and Trade Association, the competition involved a 30-minute knife skill class followed by a 60-minute challenge to prepare, cook and present a two-course menu for two people featuring scallops in the starter and guinea fowl in the main course.

Keanan is now automatically through to the semi-final of the Craft Guild of Chefs National Young Chef of the Year competition, which will take place in mid-2019.
