WE WOULD love to hear from chefs working in the Basingstoke and Deane area for our new 'Meet the Chef' column.

Whether you have been cooking for decades, or have just begun your career - we want to show off your story. 

We have brilliant places to dine across the borough, from pubs to restaurants, and you all deserve some recognition.

Meet The Chef: Join in with our new feature to highlight the brilliant cooks in our borough

To get involved, you only need to answer a few quick questions which can be found here

You'll be asked questions such as: What inspired you to become a chef? What was the first meal you cooked for someone else? What is your proudest career moment to date? What is your signature dish? And more. 

We'll also need pictures of yourself, your cooking and your restaurant or pub. 

Every month we will feature a new chef, to show off our borough's professional cooks.
