As official judge for the Scottish and English Italian Awards, Aldo Zilli will attend a special cook off at The Cheshire Cookery School on Monday September 14th.
The top ten in the two categories will be invited to cook a signature dish (Best Chef), or a margarita pizza (Best Pizza) which Aldo will taste and judge against his strict criteria, at the root of which is true authenticity.
Aldo said: “I’m excited to see what they come up with, but I know from experience chefs always over-complicate dishes, this is not the time to show off, we are looking for England’s Best Italian chef after all.
“Sticking to classic flavours is what true Italian cookery is about, and that’s what I’ll be looking for”.
