Saffron chef scoops seafood award

A Birmingham-based curry chef has beaten off competition from Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant at Claridge’s in London to win a prestigious seafood recipe award. Sudha Shankar Saha, executive chef at Saffron, triumphed in the Alaska Seafood Recipe Challenge, organised in association with The Craft Guild of Chefs, and held at the M&J Seafood development kitchen in London’s Covent Garden. Professional chefs were invited to devise new and innovative recipes for sustainable and wild Alaskan seafood. Three finalists were chosen and they cooked their recipes live in front of a panel of judges, who assessed them on techniques, presentation and taste. Sudha’s winning dish featured pan- fried spice-scented Alaska Salmon, Kasoori Methi-flavoured baby spinach,

and assorted mushroom Bhaji, tomato Achar and Moilee sauce. In second place was Neil Snowball, a sous chef at Claridge’s, followed by Robert Stordy, chef lecturer in Culinary Arts and International and specialist cuisine at the University of Derby. Sudha was rewarded with a trophy, a voucher for a set of professional knives and a day’s work experience in a top restaurant kitchen. He was also invited to cook and present his winning dish at the Craft Guild of Chefs skillery at Hotelympia in London on March 1st, where he joined celebrity chefs includ- ing Gary Rhodes to demonstrate his cookery skills in front of hundreds of visitors to the five day event.
