The Nottingham-based chef’s main – loin and belly of suckling pig with a kimchi glaze and braised fermented hispi cabbage hearts, Nashi pear puree and sliced pears – was the difference in the end, prompting major praise from judge Marcus Wareing.

“Every now and again in a competition we all eat a dish that we will never forget,” he said. “That is absolutely outstanding."
