Celebrity Chefs get creative with Wharfe Valley Farm’s award-winning products

The team at a West Yorkshire based rapeseed oil business have joined forces with an array of celebrity chefs to showcase their range of award-winning products online.

Wharfe Valley Farms, based at Collingham near Leeds have come up with the novel way to showcase not only their products but how to use them in simple, easy to prepare dishes at home created by an a number of local chefs.

Over the last three decades, the team have built up a reputation for creating a range of delicious products made using their home grown rapeseed oil and in turn cemented relationships with local high-profile chefs, who create innovative dishes served in boutique restaurants and hotels around the county.  

The Yorkshire chefs involved in the project include Consultant Chef Steph Moon, Radek Bak, Head Chef/Owner at Corner Grill House Restaurant in York, Gilly Robinson, Chef and Owner at The Cooks Place in Malton, Kevin Gratton, Head Chef at Moss & Moor in Ilkley and Lionel Strub, Chef/patron at The Clarendon Hotel in Hebden were all invited to create dishes of their choice, using any product from the range which now includes rapeseed oils, dressings, mayos and fruit vinegars.   

All the dishes created will reflect each of the chef’s individual styles and use only the best British and locally sourced ingredients.

Wharfe Valley Farms owner Sallyann Kilby said: “We’d like to say a huge thanks to the family of Chefs that have eagerly jumped on board with us and joined the challenge to create these innovative dishes using our range of products. 

“It’s a great way for all of us to showcase what we are passionate about as people and businesses and give our customers new ideas on how they can use our range.  If there are any budding chefs who want to join the challenge, please do get in touch!”

The first three Chefs, Steph, Radek and Gilly have been filmed at work using the kitchen at The Cooks Place Cookery School in Malton and will have their dishes showcased on the Wharfe Valley website and as well as across their social media channels. 

Sallyann continues: “In each of the films, the Chefs will review their menus and ingredients and take the viewer through each stage of the creation, including any hints and tips to help you improve your culinary skills. Recipe and ingredients cards will also be posted online so you can create your own version at home.”
