Matt Mitchell and Robert Dant win the Schwartz Flavour Pairing Competition

Schwartz for Chef are proud to announce Matt Mitchell and Robert Dant from Christ's Hospital School in Sussex as the winners of the 'Schwartz Flavour Pairing Competition' held at Salon Culinaire, Hospitality on 25th January 2011.

Matt and Robert wowed the judging panel and tantalised tastebuds with their creative use of two of the Schwartz Flavour Pairings for 2011 - Hazelnut & Nutmeg and Oregano & Butterbean. They created a stunning main dish of Pan fried line caught hake with chorizo, oregano and butterbean, poached squid, sauteed spinach and oregano sauce romesco, followed by a beautiful, 'on trend' taster plate of mini desserts including cinnamon and hazelnut mille feuille, cinnamon and rum sponge and hazelnut amaretti with coffee gel and cinnamon syrup

Matt and Robert not only won the coveted 'Gold' award from the Salon Culinaire, but also a 'money-can't-buy' opportunity to spend a day with celebrated chef, Cyrus Todiwala, courtesy of Schwartz for Chef.
