Will Rose, winner of the bartlett mitchell Chef of the Year title, recently completed a unique three-day trip in Copenhagen as part of his prize. The trip, which included visiting some of the City’s leading restaurants, saw Rose spend three days alongside Michelin starred Adam Byatt and Pete Redman, bartlett mitchell’s chef director. Rose was able to enjoy a broad range of culinary experiences, as well as have access to Byatt and Redman’s advice and guidance.
As part of his prize, Rose has already undertaken a stage at The Latymer restaurant with chef Matt Worswick, and worked with Byatt and Tom Kitchin at the Verdura Resort in Sicily.
Rose said: “Winning Chef of the Year meant that I was offered a trip of a lifetime. Not only did I get to eat at some amazing restaurants that I’ve only read and dreamt of, but I also go to see a city I’ve always wanted to go to.”
Redman added: “We really wanted Will to have a unique experience and chose Copenhagen to give him exposure to the food and concepts he wouldn’t normally see. Our approach to training and development mirrors our culture; we don’t like to offer ‘off-the-shelf’ programmes, but more a development package which suits the individual. This is really important.”
