Rice-ing star

Andrew Williams, from Salt House Bacaro restaurant in Liverpool, has won the Riso Gallo Young Risotto Chef of the Year competition for budding chefs aged 18-25 years old. The 20-year-old cooked caramelised onion and red wine risotto with butter-roasted pine nuts, crispy onions, radicchio and taleggio, finished with Valrhona chocolate, white alba truffle and chive oil.

For his prize, Andrew will enjoy three days’ work experience at Angela Hartnett’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Murano, in Mayfair, London. “Andrew’s risotto was a culinary triumph of precise, balanced flavours and delicacy, while retaining the creamy al dente texture of the finished risotto we judges were looking for,” said judge Paul Gayler. “He is a calm and focused young chef who has a great future in front of him.”
