The Egg Award 2013 - The Judges - Jonny Marsh

The fourth judge invited to take part in The Egg Award 2013 is rising talent Jonny Marsh from Manchester.  As a schoolboy Jonny spent every Saturday working in the kitchens of the sadly now defunct Manchester restaurant, Brasserie Blanc, despite being too young to be paid.  But his talent and determination paid off when world-renowned chef Raymond Blanc met Jonny at the eaterie back in 2008.  Jonny was invited to Blanc's Michelin-starred Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and was offered an apprenticeship. He gained experience and knowledge from the experts.

After leaving Fred Longworth High School, Jonathan studied for an NVQ in food and drink at South Trafford College. That was followed by a further course in professional cookery and working part-time at Michael Caines @Abode.  He's followed that up by working as a barristers clerk interspersed with working alongside Sunday Brunch celebrity chef Simon Rimmer who along with his other culinary heroes, has been the inspiration for his current venture at the Cadence Cafe.

On asking Jonny as to future goals he's nothing if not ambitious when he said - "Well, I'd like awards for the food, I'd love rosettes as there isn't anything against pop up restaurant being awarded like that! I would have a two year goal of gaining 3 rosettes."
