The first annual Sharrow of the Year competition has taken place!
Sharrow Chef of the Year was a big success with La Terrazza winning the overall competition by 2 points from East and West Restaurant. Their winning dish was Pan fried salmon with polenta and a tomato salsa, which they accompanied with a dry Italian white wine. The judging panel commented on the simplicity of the flavours in the dish along with the outstanding presentation as the main reason for choosing it over East and West.
The event was attended by around 300 people over the course of the day, with people being able to try a number of different styles of food and learning some of the secrets of the best restaurant cookery in the area. La Terrazza’s chef Mario Cantelimi really went the extra mile by bringing alongan amazing Italian Ricotta and Fruit cake for the audience and judges to taste and at 23 showed to everyone present what a talented young chef he is.
The event ran alongside the Sharrow Flea Market, Big lunch events and a play by Side by Side theatre company, which proved to be very popular with the residents of Sharrow.
