Sabrina Gidda represents Central Region on Great British Menu 2019




Sabrina Gidda represents Central Region on Great British Menu 2019

Great British Menu (GBM) returned to our screens on 20th March 2019 for series 14. The BBC Two show puts the nation’s most talented chefs to the test. Women in the Food Industry are interviewing the strong female line-up of chefs from across Britain competing to serve their dish at the final banquet. Their co-founder, Mecca Ibrahim, interviewed Sabrina Gidda, who returns to the show to represent the Central region.

When asked how Sabrina got on to Great British Menu she said "As you know I was on Great British Menu last year so I was really thrilled when they asked me to do it again, as I had such fun last year".

She was asked what it was like working with  Ryan Simpson from Orwells Restaurant and Kray Treadwell of The Man Behind the Curtain and how this compared to when she was in a region with only Ryan last year. "They were both really gracious. I was with Ryan before in Great British Menu last year so loved cooking with him again. It was all great fun. We’re all cooking, we’re all in the same boat. We’re all trying to do the best we can and we just get on with things.

The music theme in Great British Menu was rerally exciting for her:  "Everyone has that song that takes you back to a place and one of my courses takes me back to the time when I first started collecting vinyl. There is something magical about the physical thing of picking up an original vinyl record from the sixties, but you are listening to it in a completely different time. We always grew up listening to vinyl like Bob Marley,  Motown, Stevie Wonder and UB40. Then there was all of the Punjabi music. So it was really great to explore that.."

When asked what advice she would give to budding chefs looking to be in her position she said "It’s important to be really driven and really focused.  But also talk, network and pick up the phone. Be brave, people value bravery and you will surprised about how many people in top positions like receiving letters or approaches from those starting out.  Be confident and enjoy the journey. There will always be testing times along the way, so go for it!"

Sabrina will be appearing on Great British Menu from Wednesday 3rd April representing the Central region. You can read the full interview with Sabrina Gidda on Women In the Food Industry.
