Eckington Manor is celebrating the achievements of its chef, Mark Stinchcombe, with a series of evenings showcasing dishes cooked on a recent series of Masterchef: The Professionals.
Stinchcombe triumphed on the BBC show last year, beating stiff competition and impressing the judges, Gregg Wallace, Marcus Wareing and Monica Galetti.
“We couldn’t be more proud of the success Mark has achieved and we are very privileged that he and his wife Sue are heading up our kitchen here,” says owner and founder of Eckington, Judy Gardner. “Mark’s journey on Masterchef gripped the nation and catapulted him onto the national stage, inviting him into the sitting rooms of people up and down the country as they tuned in to follow his progress.”
The hotel’s Masterchef Menu evenings will take place on the first Friday and Saturday of the month, from October until April.
Dishes will include fillet of beef and marrowbone crusted short rib served with carrots and charcoal emulsion, and scallops with roasted lemon, peas and buttermilk. Desserts include iced vanilla parfait with blackberry and champagne.”
