Congratulations to Leamington chef Harry Guy, for winning Roux Scholar 2016. Here is Harry pictured with culinary legends Alain Roux, Pierre Gagnaire and Michel Roux Jr.
The 26 year-old chef saw off five other finalists in a challenge which saw them given three hours to prepare and serve Norfolk black chicken cooked en croûte, cardoon gratin and tarragon sauce.
His prize includes £6,000 and the opportunity to work in a three Michelin star restaurant anywhere in the world for three months.
Harry started work at Mallory Court in 2007, spending six years working under the Eden Hotel Collection’s food and beverage director, Simon Haigh, who Harry describes as his ‘biggest influence’. Harry went on to work with Simon Rogan at his flagship two Michelin Star Cumbrian restaurant L’Enclume before returning to Mallory Court on Harbury Lane last October, where he is now support and development chef.
