Rosemary Shrager judges Gourmet Garden Cook Off

Rosemary Shrager and Gourmet Garden Cook off winner Filipa Kay

On Thursday 24th January Gourmet Garden, with the help of celebrity guest judge Rosemary Shrager, crowned Filipa Kay as their UK Blog off/ Cook off champion taking home a prize of a trip to Noosa food festival in Australia, the opportunity to be a brand ambassador and a substantial cash prize.

Food bloggers were asked to enter the competition by coming up with new and creative recipes using Gourmet Garden’s fresh herb and spices. After an extensive search of blog entries the four best recipes were chosen and the bloggers were invited to come to London to participate in a final cook off.

The finalists were Filipa Kay of Gourmet Mum, Donna Lovegrove of Mummy News, Michelle Hubbard of Mummy Rates It and Emma Wight-Boycott of Emma Nutrition.

The competition took place in the fantastic kitchen at the Central Street Cookery School with Rosemary Shrager hosting the day. Rosemary encouraged the contestants throughout the day, judged the final dishes and gave the cook off that special Rosemary touch. Engaging with the contestants Rosemary mingled with each participant imparting her cooking wisdom as she went.

It was a great event and Filipa was thrilled to take home the trophy as the UK Blog off/ Cook off victor. Well done to all who took part on a brilliant day!
