Game Chef of the Year



Our annual search for the UK's best professional game chef has begun.

As one of the UK's main game suppliers, Braehead Foods have been running the competition for five years now and it is once again supported by Highland Game.

The competition will involve a five-month search to find the best upcoming, professional game chef in the UK. Contestants will be challenged to cook up fresh, innovative dishes using some of the finest game produce the UK has to offer.

Game Chef of the Year winner 2016 Lorna McNee from Andrew Fairlie in Gleneagles, with runners up. 

Managing Director of Braehead Foods, Craig Stevenson says: "the competition has been running for many years now and each year the number and quality of entries exceeds our expectations. We want the chefs who are working and creating delicious recipes using game meats across the UK to be recognised for what they do."

Last years top prize was claimed by Lorna McNee from Andrew Fairlie in Gleneagle. Not only has the competition experienced its first female leader but also it's first female applicants, with two making there way to the final. Adam Thomason of Restaurant Associations and Andrew D'Amery of Delaware North Wembley Stadium, both from London finished joint runners up in the competition.
