Essential Cuisine offers chefs the day off for Cornish Culinary Tour
Essential Cuisine's Chefs' Day Off
21/06/2017 - 09:24
Essential Cuisine, the Stock People, is calling on chefs to describe their perfect day away from the action of the kitchen in its new #ChefsDayOff competition, with a prize of an all-expenses-paid culinary tour of Cornwall’s world-famous Padstow up for grabs.

Now open for entries, the competition has been launched to celebrate its headline sponsorship of the Craft Guild of Chefs’ Universal Cookery and Food Festival (UCFF), dubbed the ‘Glastonbury of chefs’, which returns on September 20.

All chefs need to do is visit Essential Cuisine’s Twitter page – @essentialcuisin – and describe their ideal day off using the hashtag #ChefsDayOff. Entries can be registered via video, gif, image or a simple tweet, with creativity and good humour actively encouraged.

The winner will receive two tickets to UCFF, including an exclusive beach foraging tour and complimentary food and drink for the day, plus dinner for two the night before at the Michelin-starred Paul Ainsworth at No6 and an overnight stay for two at Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant.

Nigel Crane, managing director of Essential Cuisine, said: “As chefs ourselves, we know that kitchen life can sometimes be so involved that a day away from the pass is extremely precious. To help celebrate our headline sponsorship of UCFF, we’re inviting all comers to tell us what their perfect day off would entail and offering a tantalising prize – Michelin-starred food, the very best Cornish hospitality, insight, inspiration and the chance to get back to nature. A chef’s day off to live long in the memory.”

UCFF is a celebration of food, seasonality and the harvest, and offers the chance for chefs nationwide to rub shoulders with farmers, foragers and growers as well as suppliers, industry insiders and fellow chefs. This year it is being held at Padstow Farmshop in the centre of Cornwall’s culinary capital.
