We are so thrilled for Tom Hamblet: MasterChef Professionals Champion 2023! He is someone we’ve worked with over the years, even as far back as 2016, when he was a very young talent, at the live chef showcase at the Big Nibble in Horsham. If you look carefully you’ll see our own Hilary Knight, organising in the background of the picture 🙂
Cllr Ruth Fletcher, Cabinet Member for Local Economy and Place, at Horsham District Council, said: “We are all thrilled at the Council that our very own Tom Hamblet has won the 2023 MasterChef competition. Some seven years ago when he was a trainee we invited him along to our annual food festival in Horsham to cook in our demonstration kitchen. We are thrilled to see just how far he has come. Massive congratulations Tom.”
Over the years, Horsham District Council has supported local chef talent and Sussex food and drink producers, including our Natural Partnerships CIC projects to get more Sussex producers onto menus and shelves in Sussex, including our current Sussex Six Campaign.
