2007 Gordon Ramsay Scholar crowned

Jamie Raftery, chef de partie at Michael Caines's two-Michelin-starred Gidleigh Park Hotel in Devon, was crowned the 2007 Gordon Ramsay Scholar yesterday (2 December) at Birmingham's NEC.

The competition saw 32 working chefs from across the UK battle it out through a series of cook-offs over the course of the five-day event held at the BBC Good Food Show.

The event culminated in an eight-strong final during which judges including Gordon Ramsay Holdings chefs Angela Hartnett and Mark Askew picked Raftery as the overall winner.

As the winner of the 2007 scholarship, Raftery has been awarded an array of prizes including a VW car, £5000 and a week long placement in each of Gordon's signature restaurants in London, Paris and New York.
