About the event
We are very excited to welcome MasterChef the professionals star Luke Rhodes. Luke will be leading a live virtual cooking class for our students. He will be showing you how to cook - Hendo’s chicken wings, Mac and Cheese and loaded fries.
Luke Rhodes starred in series 13 of MasterChef the professionals and made the final 8 and is Sheffield born and bred.
He is classically trained and enjoys fine dining, but his real love is classic American BBQ. Being from Yorkshire, hearty food has been drilled into him from a young age so he likes to balance both hearty and fine dining in his cooking.
Luke started training at The Sheffield College when he was 16, where he gained a professional chefs diploma while working at a 1 Michelin star restaurant. His first job was at The Handmade Burger Co when he was 16.
Over the years he has worked at The Old Vicarage in Sheffield, Cutlers Hall, Red True BBQ and Karnivore BBQ. He also took two years out and worked at Char Char Bull, a 2 hat/Gold plated steak restaurant in Perth, Australia.
He wouldn’t be where he is today without my college lecturers, Len Unwin, Mick Burke and Neil Taylor. They taught him everything he needed to know, to get him into the business.
He has always looked up to both Monica Galetti and Marcus Wareing, I own a lot of their cookbooks and have always admired their dedication to the hospitality industry. To get the opportunity to cook for them has been a dream come true and I will never forget this experience.
"The best thing about being a chef is putting in all the hours, developing a dish and it finally making it onto the menu, customers ordering it and enjoying something you have put so much hard work into. It gives you the sense of fulfilment. The worse thing about being a chef is time away from your family on special occasions such as Christmas, Birthdays etc."
