Local Food Heroes Gary Rhodes UKTV
UKTV Local Food Heroes was a competition to find, celebrate and award the UK’s best independent food businesses – those who championed local produce with a strong connection to their community. I was selected for the finals, visited by celebrity chef Simon Rimmer at the Little Green Men Chilli Farm. We visited a local market, cooked for the public and I progressed to the final judging by Gary Rhodes. Simon Rimmer and I remained friends. We ran into each other many times at the local and national food events and throughout my career as The Chilliman.

I would like to pay tribute to the late great Food Evangelist and Celebrity Chef Gary Rhodes who had a positive lasting impact on my life, my cooking and my attitude towards food growing, food production and locally sourced cuisine.
I would like to thank Gary Rhodes and his family for his vibrant, exciting, new, unrelenting, highest quality of service to the industry and to us all as British local food producers.
“Gary was the first rock star of cooking, making it cool.” (Quote: Prue Leith of The Great British Bake Off)
Gary Rhodes was the chef that “put British cuisine on the map” (Quote: Gordon Ramsay).
