Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, we have just heard that our chef, Jimmy Gray, is among the latest nominations for Sussex Young Chef of the Year as part of this year's Sussex Food and Drink Awards 2012/13.
Now in its fourth year, the Sussex Food and Drink Awards support and recognise the large number of local producers and creators of award-winning food and products in our bountiful county. They are pretty much Sussex's foodie Oscars and it is fantastic to be nominated.
However, we just need to help him win because his cooking certainly deserves the accolade and without the support and voting energy of our loyal customers we would not be able to take part in these awards; we have been truly bowled over by the well wishes we received for another accolade, Which?The Good Food Regional Readers' Restaurant of the Year and are still basking in the glory!
Voting is now open so good luck to Jimmy and it goes without saying that we would really appreciate your time to vote for this talented young man via the Sussex Food and Drink Awards website and click Vote in the top tool bar and then follow the easy steps. (It may be easier to register as a new user).
And as a bit of summer fun for our email club members we will, again, give away five, free Tuesday degustation menus for two, to the five most interesting dishes based on seasonality that members email us to request that we put on the tasting menu. Choose any category of cold starter, hot starter, fish dish, meat dish or dessert. To enter, simply email Jeremy: firstname.lastname@example.org with your suggestions. Closing date is July 31st 2012. Good luck!
We hope to see you soon.
Jeremy, Vera and the team
