Massey vs Pile : The Vital Statistics

Date: 14 February 2017
Filed In: Food and Drink

As a bit of fun we've put together a list of statistics for our two chefs who'll be battling it out on Thursday 23rd February 2017 at the first event at The Old Quay House in Fowey.

As the first Great Food Fight event is just around the corner we thought what better way to introduce you to the two chefs than a statistics round up - a closer look into some of the trials and tribulations of each chef over their careers.  Lets hope there's more tribulations on the evenings themselves!
