Chef from Chadwell Heath care home set to battle it out in cookery contest final

09:24 05 June 2014

A care home chef is through to the final of a national cookery contest.

Steven Doxey will take on eight competitors on June 19 at Sanctuary Care’s Chef of the Year Competition.

The assistant chef, who works at the Chadwell Heath Residential Care Home, in Chadwell Heath Lane, secured his place in the final with an idea for a Caribbean-inspired feast.

He will be cooking stuffed jerk chicken, sweet potato and caramelised creole and rum and raisin cheesecake.

Steven said: “Care catering doesn’t always get a lot of recognition so this competition is a great way to raise awareness of the quality and talents of care chefs.

“I am delighted to be in the final and will be doing my best to wow the judges with my menu on the day.”

The contest, which has been running for four years, is open to cooks and chefs in Sanctuary Care homes and sees participants create a menu suitable for people in a care setting.

The dishes are judged on innovation, nutrition, balance and taste.

Mark Ord, Sanctuary Care’s hotel and catering services support manager, said: “The chefs in the final are a shining example of what can be achieved if you have flair and passion.”
