  9. Adam Harper – Chef’s Blog

    Have finally buckled down to write my chef’s blog – not that I can remember much at the moment.  I’m surviving on 4 hours sleep a night as my wife Sophie and I had our little girl Ellarose on September 12th this year.  Ellarose is a true chef’s baby and hungry ALL the time.

    I’ve been at Rowley’s now for about 18 months, so let me introduce you to the other members of the Kitchen Team – Matt, Dave Jake and our apprentice Lizzie.  We’ve recently started serving our fresh,  warm bar snacks – nicknamed Adam’s Nuts & Nibbles – Parmesan & Anchovy Cheese Straws, Mr Hatton’s Spiced Pork Scratchings and Adams Caramelised Chilli Spiced Nuts – all homemade.

    I’m also busy making mince pies –  I love Christmas time – it’s my favourite – delicious spicy and rich flavours, so to fight the Yuletide flab I’ve started boxing, working out with a trainer Monday and Wednesday mornings at 6am, yes that’s 6 am – I’m a glutton for food and punishment!

    Congratulations to our Head Chef Adam Harper for making it to the regional
    finals of the Roux Scholarship!1546168_1207658925929781_8020015005929431318_n

    The Roux Scholarship is a premier competition for UK chefs aged from 22 to 30 years, and ranks among the most prestigious in the world. The competition is based on technical skill, a strong palate and deep appreciation and understanding of the history of classical cooking. The winner will go on a unique “stage” to any of the 3 star Michelin restaurants in the world

    This year the finalists challenge was to create a recipe to serve four people using one whole fresh Pollock and 600g live whole cockles accompanied by two garnishes (one of which had to include button mushrooms) and a sauce to accompany the dish. Competitors have two and a half hours to cook their dish, along with a dessert from a mystery box of ingredients provided on the day.

    The six finalists will go through to the national final in London on 4 April. Adam is the first reserve chef, placed 7th out of the 18 finalists who competed at the regional finals
