Adam Simmonds’ debut on the BBC’s Great British Menu 2013
Michelin-starred chef, Adam Simmonds, will make his debut in this years BBC’s Great British Menu. The eighth series kicks off on January 28 with the London & South East heat airing in the first week.
Adam Simmonds, executive chef at Danesfield House Hotel and Spa, will be competing against Tom Aikens and Matt Gillian of the Pass at South Lodge Hotel. The chefs will be mentored by previous Great British Menu winner, Richard Corrigan.
Adam says: “It was fantastic to be in the show and to be up against two great chefs such as Matt and Tom. It’s a massive show with a loyal following and I’m glad I was given the opportunity to have my turn in taking part. I’m very honored that I was invited to be part of it.”
Speaking of his experience on the show, Adam says: “It’s completely different to the day job. When you’re involved in it you have your head down and you’re being pulled left, right and centre. It’s only when you finish filming and you come out of it that you realise what you’ve been through, what you’ve achieved. The experience of competing in The Great British menu is priceless.”
This year’s competition is held in conjunction with Comic Relief and the banquet will host fund-raisers for charity. In each heat, a comedian will join the regular judging panel of Matthew Fort, Oliver Peyton and Prue Leith. The Great British Menu starts on January 28, 2013 on BBC2.
