Yakkers and the team at Lakeland Radio took 5 lucky listeners and their plus ones to the Gilpin Hotel for a fine dining experience they would never forget. Well done to Pauline Stephenson, Geoff Monkman, Julie Thomas, Liz Howells, and Ian Ross! All winners with the Gilpin Hotel and Lakeland Radio.
The Gilpin Hotel had featured all week on Alex Polizzi's new television series, Chefs On Trial. The programme saw a series of top chefs endure a thorough and exciting job interview to become the new Executive Chef at the Gilpin. Hrishikesh Desai saw off all the other competition with a series of impressive, mouthwatering dishes, to secure the coveted position.
Our 5 listeners each correctly answered a question on air with Yakkers @ Breakfast, in order to win the lunch tickets for themselves and their plus ones. They enjoyed a beautiful lunch featuring stunning dishes from Hrishikesh's new menu.
That wasn't the end of the prizes though! The listeners were all then presented with a chocolate petit four containing a piece of paper with another fabulous prize on it! Huge congratulations to Julie Thomas who won the star prize! Julie and Simon will be enjoying a night's stay at Gilpin's fabulous Lake House, with a spa trail for two, cocktails by the lake, and a chauffeur to whisk them to Gilpin Hotel to enjoy a special tasting menu with matched wines!
