A chef from a Leamington hotel appeared on a popular TV show yesterday (Saturday).

Paul Foster from Mallory Court was a guest on BBC1’s Saturday Kitchen with James Martin and celebrity guest Matt Goss.

Paul is no stranger to the show, having previously appeared on it, as well as BBC2’s Great British Menu.

Paul grew up in Coventry and joined Mallory Court Hotel from Tuddenham Mill near Newmarket, where he has achieved several top accolades in the past four years – including three AA rosettes, The Good Food Guide 2011’s UK Best Up and Coming Chef, and Observer Food Monthly Young Chef of the Year 2011.

Paul said: “My ethos is to use the best suppliers and buy the best possible ingredients. I don’t like to over manipulate food; some dishes need work but if you have great ingredients it generally just needs balancing and cooking correctly and you’ll end up with something fantastic.”

Then it’s just about using your knowledge and skills to take it that bit further and make it something really special.
