A Michelin-star country house hotel and restaurant in Lympstone was featured on a televised cooking contest this week.
Michael Caines’ Lympstone Manor played host to three of the six semi-finalists in the Master Chef: The Professionals competition which aired on BBC Two on Wednesday (December 12) night.
The renowned chef, who is set to open a new restaurant on Exmouth seafront in 2020, set the three prospective finalists tasks over the course of two days at Lympstone Manor.
On day one, each of the competitors had to recreate Michael’s signature dish– A lobster fricassee with lobster bisque and summer vegetables and herbs – in the Lympstone Manor kitchen.
On day two, all three had to take part in a lunch service at the Michelin-star restaurant.
Luke, from Hampsire, was in charge of a quail mousse raviolo on a celeriac fondant topped with a quail egg.
Oli, from Lancashire, had to prepare a Chinese five-spice duck main course.
Matthew, from Berkshire, was in charge of a braised brill dish with mussels and summer vegetables.
The episode will be available to watch on the BBC iPlayer until Friday, January 11.
