Two young and exciting chefs from Llandudno are set to compete in the North Wales heat of the National Chef of Wales competition later this month with strong opposition also coming in from other areas in the region.
Jack Davison of the St Tudno Hotel and Andreas Leisinger of the Imperial Hotel are two of the names set to go head-to-head in a thrilling contest to unearth the best chef in Wales. Held twice a year, this event is always a superb showcase for local and deserving talent.
The Imperial Hotel is a mainstay of the coastal town and receives rave reviews from the many visitors who stay each year. Boasting a stunning location and a wonderfully archaic aesthetic, the hotel is one of the finest establishments available with its functions and cuisine being of the highest standard.
Of equal acclaim, the St Tudno Hotel on North Parade is lauded for its fantastic customer service with one visitor going on to claim that it’s, “better than the Ritz”. A walk along its old halls will instantly remind you of this as the owners have taken the utmost care to keep it classic yet contemporary.
The two chefs from these two places of fine dining will be taking part in the culinary contest with plenty at stake for the winner. As well as claiming the title, the victorious chef will be granted a £2000 prize; brilliant for any up and coming chef to bolster their arsenal with.
January 13th is the day pencilled in for the showdown at Coleg Llandrillo with some respected names and famous faces expected to be in attendance in this high-profile event which kicks off at 1pm. The Culinary Association of Wales are organising the cook-off and their president, Colin Gray, had this to say: “Winning this competition should be the pinnacle for all chefs working in Wales. It provides a wonderful platform for chefs to demonstrate their culinary skills in the heat of a competition setting and at an event designed to showcase the very best that the country has to offer.”
