Dessert: Fig, Pistachio and Tomato Tartlets – hero’ing Mutti Double Concentrated Puree
Our Mutti head chef, Carlo Casoni said: “As we expected the standard in the final was extremely high. Each of our contestants should be extremely proud with how they performed throughout the day, they really did put their heart and soul into it. All the dishes were very accomplished and delivered high quality and great taste. But there can only be one winner and we unanimously agreed that Hannah’s menu was the standout success. She achieved consistently high marks across each of the judging criteria and she really showcased how the Mutti tomatoes fitted perfectly in every dish. She richly deserves being crowned our champion 2021.”
