See MasterChef champion Eddie Scott at work at Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School

MasterChef 2022 champion Eddie Scott will be cooking up a storm at the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School this autumn when he will make a guest appearance demonstrating his culinary skills to guests.

The 31-year-old from Beverley beat off competition from 44 other amateur cooks to be crowned the winner in May this year.

After spending eight years as a navigation officer in the Merchant Navy, at the age of 26, Eddie became a Marine pilot, piloting ships on the Humber before leaving earlier this year to pursue a career as a chef.

He spent the summer honing his skills at East Yorkshire’s only Michelin-starred restaurant, the Pipe and Glass at South Dalton, before leaving to spend time working with Gordon Ramsay in London.

Eddie will deliver two demonstrations at the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School situated at Highfield Farm, near Southburn on Friday 11th November at 2pm and 5pm.

He will be demonstrating some of his signature dishes which he delivered when he appeared on the hit BBC show.

Tim Rymer from JSR Farms, which set up the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School in 2010, said he was delighted to be welcoming the chef to Southburn.

He said: “A number of years ago we welcomed MasterChef finalist Sara Danesin to the cookery school and that was extremely popular.

“When I saw that Eddie was local and a Humber Pilot, I said if he wins, we will have to get him to come to the cookery school and we are delighted that he is.

“He will deliver two demonstrations producing one of his signature dishes at each.

“He will be cooking and talking about the recipe and at the end he will hand out tasters of his dish.”

Guests to the cookery school’s events are sure to be in for a real treat.

Eddie was praised by the MasterChef judges throughout the seven weeks of culinary challenges and an exhilarating final cook-off.

MasterChef judge John Torode said: “Eddie is nothing short of a culinary powerhouse.

“His love of classic French food blended with the spices of India, has made us really stand up and take notice.

“He’s daring, he’s adventurous, he doesn’t play it safe.”

Fellow judge Gregg Wallace added: “I think we’ve just seen the birth of a future great chef.

“Eddie impressed from the moment he set foot in this kitchen.

“He’s hardly put a foot wrong throughout the competition.”

After winning the show, Eddie said: “It’s everything. My whole life I feel has been building up to this moment.

“I can’t believe I’m standing here as the MasterChef champion.

“It’s just been the most stressful and the most enjoyable!

“I feel like I’ve just discovered who I am as a cook. It’s the best feeling ever.”

Tickets for the two demonstrations, which will take place at 2pm and 5pm on Friday 11th November, are priced £35 per person, which includes canapés on arrival.
