Head Chef at Gracewell of Bath, Nick Sauter, has been crowned Gracewell Healthcare’s MasterChef Competition winner.
The competition was open to all chefs at Gracewell Healthcare homes and entrants were initially challenged to prepare a delicious main course and dessert with a budget of just £5.00.
The four finalists, including Nick, were tasked with demonstrating flair, creativity, taste and quality when preparing dishes for the judging panel. In the final there was no budget, so Nick was able to go all out and create an impressive dish that consisted of almond topped hake with langoustines, confit cherry tomatoes, a lobster bisque and pea puree.
He said: “I am so honoured to have won this competition. It took a lot of hard work and preparation, as the other chefs across the company are also very experienced and talented. I pour my heart and soul into every dish I create, and Gracewell of Bath residents are always extremely appreciative.”
With 25 years’ experience, including work at Michelin starred restaurant, Nick has been at Gracewell of Bath since it opened in 2017. He became Head Chef at the care home in September 2019.
As this year’s champion, Nick will represent the UK in Denver, Colorado, US at Gracewell’s Leadership Conference in Spring 2020, whilst all finalists will have their dishes featured as ‘Signature Dishes’ on the Gracewell Spring Menu Cycle.
