WE HAVE A WINNER!
Nikki Holmes has been crowned the winner of the Kenwood Disaster Chef competition during the live final held at The Kenwood Academy in Havant.
Following a series of challenges that included; scallops on a choux tartlette with a pea and mint puree for starter, pappardelle with an arrabbiata sauce for main course and chocolate fondant for dessert, Nikki was declared the winner by our panel of expert judges.
The judges – pop star Liz McClarnon, Kenwood’s development chef Martin Johns and SORTED’s Ben Ebbrell, scored each Disaster Chef finalist on their cooking technique, presentation and the taste of each dish.
Nikki’s most impressive meal was the choux tartlette starter, which was deemed by the judges to be perfectly cooked.
Nikki was awarded a fantastic prize package worth over £4,000, which included a kitchen makeover, a cookery course and a selection of Kenwood’s stylish kitchen appliances to ensure she always has a helping hand in the kitchen. With Nikki’s new found confidence she now plans to host regular dinner parties for her friends and try out brand new meal ideas as well as adapt those that she was taught by our experts.
