Validation Dinner: Terry Stewart

Congratulations to chef Terry Stewart on his successful validation by the La Belle Assiette Jury!

Congratulations to chef Terry Stewart on his successful validation dinner. His validation took place on the 6th of January in Brighton. The role of the jury members was to try the private chef dining experience and evaluate the menu prepared by the chef.

Terry Stewart has a vast amount of experience in the catering industry. He first developed his passion when he was about eight years old, and was curious about how his mother created such delicious meals in the kitchen. Over the years he continued to hone his skills in the kitchen and went on to work in some of the most prestigious restaurants in London, working alongside Michelin starred chefs. He has worked as a Senior Chef at “The Collection” on South Brompton Street, “60 St James” at Green Park, and “Café Nico” at Hyde Park. He was also Head Chef at “Pasha” for several years where he was able to hone his skills in Moroccan and North African cuisine. Terry Stewart now has more than 23 years of experience in the catering industry. Apart from North African cuisine Terry also loves to cook classical food with a modern twist and pan Asian style dishes. His favourite ingredients are garlic, chilli, thyme, rosemary and tarragon.

The chef as very thorough in finding out likes and requirements before the the evening ran so smoothly because of how intuitive he was with us, our guests and waking little ones.. Terry explained all the meals and how the evening would run leaving just the right amount of time between courses. The food was amazing. He also coped around waking children and was very intuitive with our needs, guests and waking little ones. We would highly recommend and will be booking again.”
