Sharps Brewery Connoisseur/Walkers Sunbites Ambassador

September saw me developing recipes for the above two companies, and thus becoming a chosen connoisseur and ambassador of the brands

I'm really look forward to being on board with these two companies, and although each have very different businesses, both are really passionate about driving their brands forward through like mixed customers, and the use of social media.

Spending a day in London at The Cookery school with Sunbites, saw me blind taste testing the key ingredients that go into this product, and exploring the various ways that Sunbites can be consumed, through incorporating them into our food dishes.  Expanding people's minds into Sunbites being more than just a crisp.  Here is a simple canapĂ© dish I created for them:

Rock in Cornwall is where Sharps Brewery is based, and they invited myself and two other avid food bloggers down to Rick Steins cookery school in Padstow, to spend the day developing our dishes to match their connoisseur beers, whilst being paired and mentored by three great British chefs- the two Michelin starred Nathan Outlaw, the newly crowned  Michelin stared London based Alyn Williams, and Head chef/food developer Jack Stein.  Alyn was my mentor and a joy to work with, and during the evening saw us three bloggers go head to head in a cook off with an audience of around 20! ( no pressure then). Three judges deliberated, and decided to crown yours truly the Sharps Connoisseur 2012. Lots of exciting things ahead with this title and responsibility!!!
