A Woburn chef who washed pots at Flitwick Manor Hotel before reaching the final of BBC’s Masterchef: The Professionals has returned to where his career first began.
And just three months after becoming head chef of the four star hotel’s fine dining restaurant, Steve Barringer has already proved to be a valuable ingredient.
This week the hotel has been awarded 2 AA Rosettes for culinary excellence - a highly sought after seal of approval.
Giles Shaw, general manager, said: “We are thrilled to be awarded such an accolade.
“Steve and his team’s enthusiasm, passion for food and innovative use of ingredients are a delight to experience and we are honoured to have their hard work recognised.”
Since returning to the kitchens where he first began his career, Steve has worked with the team to become an “epicurean delight” for all food enthusiasts.
His menu descriptions are kept to the bare minimum, with limited detail in order to build suspense and intrigue for diners.
He also uses multiple techniques to provide diners with a complete sensory experience, highlighting the numerous ways in which ingredients can shine.
