Congrats to Establishment's Top Chef

Published on September 23rd 2004.

Gordo and Manchester Confidential would like to congratulate Ian Morgan, head chef at Establishment, on a truly remarkable success as runner up in the National Chef Of The Year competition on Thursday evening.
Gordo is a fan of Ian, you can read his write up on Ian and the Restaurant by clicking here
The competition was a remarkably stiff one, with hundreds of professional chefs sending in paper applications. They were whittled down to the 40 best who were then invited to participate during the first two days of the Restaurant Show. From those 40, 10 were selected for the final. They had to create dishes from a mystery box of ingredients.
The winner was Stephen Love of Love’s restaurant in Warwickshire. For Ian to come second out of the whole of the UK is a remarkable achievement, considering that we know the foul mouthed one got two of his best chefs in the competition, and our lad beat the pants off them!
Ian, when you read this, send in the recipes for your menu, and we shall publish them on the site.
Once again, congratulations Ian. I look forward to the red book arriving next February!
