York College student chef is game for success

Luke Cockerill of York College has been crowned the 2013 Game-to-Eat Student Chef of the Year at an event held at Ealing College in London.

Cockerill's dish of partridge with mushrooms and brassicas impressed the judging panel, including chef and restaurateur Mark Hix, Game-to-Eat consultant chef Lee Maycock and David Taylor and Jill Grieve from the Countryside Alliance.
His prize includes a week's work experience with Mark Hix plus £250 of catering vouchers.

Hix said: "I care passionately about seasonal British food and game is the perfect example of seasonal food at its best. It was great to see these student chefs cooking with game and we have tasted some really delicious dishes. Luke was a well-deserved winner and I look forward to welcoming him to my restaurants."

Alexia Robinson of Game-to-Eat commented: "We have really enjoyed working with student chefs over the past few months and encouraging them to cook more often with game."
