Somerset is filled with talented chefs who make up the fantastic array of restaurants we have here. The winner of this category is someone who has devoted himself to the cause of serving the best possible food.

Sponsored by Thatchers

Winner: Justin Reeves

Judges said: Justin has more than 20 years cooking experience, including working at La Sorbonne in Oxford under master chef Andre Chavagnon. He opened Reeves Restaurant in Dunster with his wife in 2005 where he says he gets a big kick from using the fresh, local ingredients on his doorstep.

Highly commended: Daniel Moon

The talented two AA rosette award winner, Daniel Moon, is head chef at Ston Easton Park, which as we have heard already today has earned a reputation for its exquisite food. He is passionate about sourcing produce from local suppliers as well as working closely with the team in the hotel’s Victorian kitchen garden.

Highly commended: Josh Eggleton

Patron of the multi-award winning Pony & Trap in Chew Magna, Josh Eggleton worked with some of the finest chefs and restaurants in the world before becoming one of the youngest to gain his first Michelin star 2011.
