MasterChef: The Professionals 2013 winner Steven Edwards will open the new kitchen and dining room at The Horder Centre in Crowborough today (Monday September 15).
Steven, who won the coveted title in the BBC’s most recent sixth series, will create a brand new signature dish for the orthopaedic centre’s new Autumn/Winter menu which he will serve to patients before holding a “scone masterclass”.
A traditional cream tea will then be served to guests in the afternoon. The new kitchen and dining room at The Horder Centre, which is run by charity Horder Healthcare, has been especially designed for patients and staff to create a light and natural environment in keeping with the centre’s location on the edge of Ashdown Forest. The Horder Centre, which celebrates its 60th anniversary this year, prepares and cooks every meal fresh on site. It has its own herb garden and is currently working towards gaining Soil Association Accreditation, a guarantee which means all produce used in food preparation meets the highest standards of sustainability and quality.
