Validation Dinner: Natalie Terpilowska

Congratulations to chef Natalie Terpilowska on her successful validation by the La Belle Assiette Jury!

Congratulations to chef Natalie Terpilowska on her successful validation dinner. Her validation took place on the 25th of August in Edinburgh. The role of the jury members was to try the private chef dining experience and evaluate the menu prepared by the chef. 

The Chef

Natalie is a young chef who started cooking at a very young age and got her way up on the line from the very bottom – washing dishes, to the very top – a successful Head Chef. She’s very passionate about what she does and researches new cooking trends and techniques all the time. Great personality makes the time spent with her fly very quickly – she loves talking about cooking!

The Menu

Tomato, basil and almond salad

or, smoked salmon on melba toast with creme fraiche and capers

Roasted aubergine with ratatouille on a bed of cous cous and rocket, pesto oil. 

or, duck with creamy thyme mash and fig in red currant and red wine syrup

roasted peaches and cream with raspberry and peach compote

or, amaretto cherries cheesecake with a roasted almond crust

“From planning to the big night, working with Natalie was a pleasure! She prepared an inventive and seasonal menu, that was really flavourful and fresh. The dishes weren’t overly complicated or pretentious and were enjoyed by all my guests – they are still raving about the deconstructed cheesecake! I’d be delighted to hire Nat to cook for me and my friends again.”

Natalie created a brilliant meal for her Validation Dinner. Each dish was simple, flavourful, and beautifully presented, clearly demonstrating her culinary talent.

As a result, we are happy to announce the validation of chef Natalie and know you would be in the best hands for your next dinner party! To view Natalie’s menus, check out her profile:
