A CHEF has won through to the final six of a prestigious cooking competition.
Christopher Golding, from Stevenage, works at Nahm Restaurant at the Halkin in Belgravia, and will be cooking for the title of 2009 Roux Scholar next month.
The 28-year-old secured his place in the final with a roast rack of lamb with tapenade, saffron croquettes and glazed baby fellens, with a tomato jus and a hint of cumin.
He was also given a surprise box of ingredients on the day, including eggs, milk, double cream, sugar, gelatine and vanilla, and he created a milk panna cotta with vanilla mousse.
The former Barclay School pupil will only be given the recipe he has to cook in the final when he arrives at the famous Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park on April 6.
Having been in the final twice before, this means a great deal to him. He said: "It is the only competition I have ever entered, and having been so close to the title twice before I am really hoping that this will be third time lucky!"
