Larry Jayasekara, sous chef at Gordon Ramsay Holdings, was yesterday announced as the Craft Guild of Chefs’ National Chef of the Year 2016, the UK’s most sought after chef prize.

Second place in the competition went to our own Paul Foster from Mallory Court and in third place was Martin Carabott from the The Royal Automobile Club.
The Craft Guild of Chefs National Chef of the Year is the largest and most prestigious chef competition in the UK and the final was watched by more than 100 hospitality professionals and students at The Restaurant Show in London’s Olympia. The chefs were given just two hours to produce four covers consisting of a starter and main using seafood and meat selected from a mystery basket. They had to create a hot or cold dessert using chocolate and coffee.
Larry joins an esteemed club of winners, which includes Ramsay himself, David Everitt- Matthias, Alyn Williams, Mark Sargeant and many more who have gone on to gain industry-wide recognition and achieve ambitious career goals thanks to their success in the competition.
