Shropshire Chef appearing on BBC2 Great British Menu next week!

Jason Hodnett, Head Chef at The Raven Hotel, Much Wenlock, is representing the Central Region in the 2015 Great British Menu.

Three of the region’s best chefs fight for the chance to cook up a delight at a prestigious banquet marking 100 years of the Women’s Institute at London’s historic Drapers Hall. Jason is up against two Michelin trained chef’s Richard Bain bridge and Pip Lacey next week - so the pressure is on!

Jason appeared in the 2014 series of the programme and receiving an admirable 9/10 for his main course from the highly acclaimed chef Marcus Wareing.

Through Monday to Friday of next week, the regional heats will see all of the chefs’ dishes scrutinized by Britain’s most accomplished chefs and veterans of the competition.

The challenge is produce 21st century dishes that honour the custodians of first class home cooking, and pay tribute to the generations of women who have helped make Britain the great culinary nation it is today.  The chefs have taken inspiration from the women in their families - with Jason turning to his mother and grandmother and will look to develop their home-cooked classics, into modern masterpieces.
