There have been tears and tantrums. The judges Katy Salter and Oliver Thring worked through the night to reach an agreement but, eventually, after several gallons of coffee and a not inconsiderable number of chocolate digestives, decided that the rightful winner of a Clarence Court ostrich egg and a bottle of Heidsieck champagne should be:
Feast with Bron’s slow cooked ham and eggs, a dish which the judges proclaimed:
“A perfect egg dish, gentle as the heat that sets them. We love this modern approach to a classic French way with eggs.”

Congratulations Bron – egg and grog on their way to you.
Thanks to all those who sent entries in – they all looked fantastic. And thanks to the esteemed (and I know incredibly busy) judges.
