We are thrilled to announce the launch of our inaugural Fried Chicken Challenge in support of The Childhood Trust. Taking place on Tuesday 7th February, participants will take turns to cook their very best take on a UK favourite for a judging panel of esteemed chefs, restaurateurs and food personalities.
Big Zuu (self-taught chef and rapper), Jimi Famurewa (Evening Standard restaurant critic), KFC’s ‘Chief Chicken Officer’, Kerth Gumbs (Chef and Great British Menu 2020 Finalist), Flora Gill (writer and journalist) and Judy Joo (TV chef and restaurateur), will judge the titans of fried chicken. Contestants include MR JI, Other Side Fried, Around The Cluck by James Cochran, Claridge’s, Richard Corrigan’s Daffodil Mulligan, Tonkotsu and Black Bear Burger.
Host and compère for the evening, with microphone in hand, will be our very own Will Bowlby. Doors open at 6.30pm and tickets cost £15 per person, which includes unlimited Keralan Fried Chicken and two Kingfisher beers.
