Northumberland chef features in Gordon Ramsay BBC series as contestants recreate his signature dish

Cal Byerley of Restaurant Pine, appeared on Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars.

A Northumberland based chef, Cal Byerley has recently appeared alongside Michelin starred chef Gordon Ramsay on a BBC One television series.

Byerley is the chef patron of Northumberland’s Michelin starred restaurant, Restaurant Pine. 

Byerley, alongside other members of the team at Restaurant Pine, join the world famous chef, Gordon Ramsay on his brand-new series, Gordon Ramsay’s Future Food Stars.

The show focuses on Ramsay searching for his next business partner, as 12 food entrepreneurs compete against each other for the spot, by taking part in various challenges.

Episode five of the series, which aired on BBC One at 9pm on Thursday, April 27 saw Ramsay and the entrepreneurs head to the North, visiting both the Lake District and Gateshead.

Along the way, they are accompanied by Cal Byerley and the other team members from Restaurant Pine.

The episode’s challenge was to create dishes by using humble ingredients, and Byerley set a fantastic example for the contestant as he demonstrated his pastry skills with his signature dish, Pine infused mille-feuille.

Contestants were challenged with recreating Byerley’s dessert dish, while also gathering all of the ingredients themselves.

Byerley and Restaurant Pine then helped Ramsay to select which contestants have done enough to progress to the next stage of the competition.
