The hotel near Leamington Spa, part of the luxury Eden Hotel Collection, welcomed 120 diners on October 4 to sample seven exquisite dishes in the collection’s third annual Battle of Eden. Each dish was specially created by a chef from a different hotel.
Eden’s Food and Beverage Director, Simon Haigh, introduced and explained each course without revealing its creator and, at the end of the evening, guests were asked to vote for their favourite.
In a hotly-fought competition, Adam Brown, head chef at Brockencote Hall Hotel in Worcestershire, clinched the title for the second year running with his carpaccio of venison, with flavours and textures of autumn.
Adam was presented with his trophy by Eden Hotel Collection owner Sir Peter Rigby. His prize also included use of a BMW for a weekend, an overnight stay at a top London hotel and dinner for two at a Michelin star restaurant in London.
Mallory Court’s own head chef, John Footman, came second with his roast aged fillet of beef, pan-friend ceps, truffles croquet and red win jus. Third place went to Ted Ruewell, head chef at Buckland Tout-Saints Hotel in Devon, for his chocolate cremeux, popcorn ice cream and chocolate soil creation.
Simon Haigh said: “This year’s Battle of Eden produced some outstanding dishes which once again showcased some exciting flavour combinations and innovative techniques.
“The event had been highly anticipated thanks in part to our fun YouTube film, which gave everyone a taste of what was to come.
“On the night itself we had a live Twitter feed on screen so that everyone could interact as guests deliberated on the winning dish. It was a real buzz – within the first hour we had hundreds of tweets coming in from guests and staff who couldn’t make it on the night!”
