A fantastic opportunity to celebrate all that is great about food … growing it, cooking it and, of course, eating it.
Sheff’s Kitchen is the ultimate cooking competition where passionate local chefs compete to win the coveted Sheff’s Kitchen title all in the spirit of fundraising for Whirlow Hall Farm Trust.
The events are full of fun but the cooking is serious, we have chosen some of the best chefs our city has to offer to take our local, high welfare ingredients and turn them into something even more spectacular. Our produce is quality and the food will be too, throw in a dash of creativity, a measure of technique and a pinch of something special gives you the perfect recipe … Sheff’s Kitchen. If you are a ‘foodie’ you will love all these events so be sure to book your tickets nice and early to avoid disappointment.
Each chef will donate their time and utilise their talents to raise vital funds to support our work with inner city children and those with special educational needs. Find out more about the great work Whirlow Hall Farm Trust does.
Diners can follow the journey of the chefs throughout the competition by booking tickets to all the three course culinary events. Each round will carry a different brief created to challenge the chefs and test their technical ability, palate and creativity.
Join us for this exciting competition and let our chefs enlighten you!
First Cut – Knockout Bistro Nights at The Farm
- Various (see listings)
- Whirlow Hall Farm
- £30 per head – 3 courses
Follow the journey from field to fork at Whirlow Hall Farm where the produce on the menu is reared and lovingly grown. Our high welfare meat is super tasty and our veggies couldn’t be fresher as they are grown just meters away from our kitchen. We trust the chefs will showcase our produce to the highest level and deliver a knock out meal to impress the judges and diners alike.
Our judges have been handpicked; bringing a wealth of experience from the food industry to the table for a fair and honest result. Diners will vote too, but will the diners’ choice concur with the experts?
The Sheff’s Kitchen Semi-final
- Thursday 4th October
- The Silver Plate Restaurant, Sheffield College
- £40 per head – 4 courses (Tables of 10*)
In this year’s semi-finals we have ramped up the difficulty of the contest to include a technical challenge. Each chef will be allocated a course that has been drawn at random and each course comes with it’s own pre-determined technical challenge. The success or failure of the chefs to meet their technical requirements will determine the winner of the evening who goes on to compete in our Sheff’s Kitchen Grand Final. Not a round for the faint of heart, our chef’s will truly be put to the test as the technical merit of the dishes will be what each course is judged upon as we say goodbye to two more contestants ahead of the final.
* Please note if your party is small you will be sat with other diners.
