TONIGHT: ABERYSTWYTH HEAD CHEF FLYING THE FLAG FOR CEREDIGION
Nathan Davies, a 30 year old head chef from the SY23 restaurant in Aberystwyth is flying the flag for Ceredigion from March 24th at 8pm, as he competes on BBC2 in the Great British Menu contest.
“There’s been nobody who has competed from Aberystwyth, so that was a big thing for me,” Nathan said.
“I’ve built this restaurant to do something different in Aberystwyth and for that to be recognised so early after we opened is amazing. It’s a big step forward for how we’re perceived and how food is perceived in Aberystwyth.
“Flying the flag for Aberystwyth is important to me. Although you go there to compete for Wales, for me it was more about competing for Aberystwyth and our area.”
Series 16 of the BBC2 show will be set across 9 episodes over 3 weeks. We can't wait to cheer Nathan on.
Good luck, Nathan and thank you for putting our little Ceredigion on the national stage!
