Ferrero UK & Ireland crowned culinary student Regor Siiner the winner of its inaugural Nutella Chef Challenge.

Tasked with creating a sweet or savoury dish with no more than one heaped teaspoon of Nutella per portion and under 500 calories, Siiner – who attends the University of Derby – presented a chocolate pastry tart filled with blackberry mousse and topped with a bon bon filled with Nutella.

Taking home the prize trip to Piedmont (Italy) including a trip to the Ferrero factory, Siiner said: “I can’t believe it, I didn’t expect to win.

“I am always looking for competitions to better myself and am so excited to be the winner of the Nutella Chef Challenge.

“The blackberry mousse added a touch of sharpness and sitting above it all was the pastry, which showcased the Nutella.

“It felt like the 30 minutes was over in no time at all but it was all worth it when I saw how much the judges enjoyed my dessert.”

Judge Fiona Morgan, head of foodservice at Ferrero UK & Ireland, added:

“This is a once in a lifetime prize and I am delighted for Regor, as our worthy winner.

“He showed great skill cooking with Nutella and by encasing it in the filo pastry, he ensured the integrity and taste of the hazelnut and cocoa spread was the star of his dish.”
