READ ‘A Dish of Chocolate Ice Cream’ online
The winner of the 2013 Mogford Prize was Emma Seaman of East Devon who was presented her award at a dinner at Gee’s Restaurant in Oxford, attended by many of the country’s finest chefs and food writers, including Raymond Blanc, Madhur Jaffrey, Atul Kochhar and Claudia Roden.
‘A Dish of Chocolate’ is about a chef who presents an elaborate dish to a young woman who visits his restaurant. By choosing his most exquisite courses, the chef finds himself falling in love … until he learns her choice of dessert. What he does not realise is that he is the punchline of a nasty joke.
