TV chefs resume rivalries at restaurant competition

Two chefs who took starring roles in a television cookery show will renew their rivalries in a cooking competition at a restaurant.

Liam Dillon, from Lichfield, and Stuart Collins, from Whitchurch, recently battled it out on the BBC series Great British Menu.

Stuart won the Midlands heat and went on to show off his skills in the UK final.

The pair will now go head-to-head once more in a competition at Liam's restaurant, The Boat Inn at Lichfield, on Wednesday.

Liam will cook three dishes while Stuart, chef patron of Docket No. 33 in Whitchurch, will do another three. Customers will then be invited to give marks.

Liam said, “It’s a great honour to again be working with and competing against my good friend Stuart.

"It’s the first Liam Vs event since before the pandemic and we hope to have as much fun now as we did then. One thing is for sure, customers will have the opportunity to enjoy excellent food and some great conversations about food, cooking and running restaurants.”

Tickets for the event, priced £100 for six courses, are strictly limited and can be booked through the website theboatinnlichfield.com or by telephoning 01543 361692.
