Got a burning culinary question? Intrigued by fine dining? Interested in trying Colin Bedford’s locally-sourced cuisine? On Thursday 31 July at 2-3pm EST (7-8pm BST) Chef Bedford will be taking over FOUR’s twitter account to answer all of your questions.
Executive chef of The Fearrington House Inn in North Carolina, Colin Bedford’s cuisine is an interplay of the culinary traditions of the American South, local ingredients, and his own English roots.
Colin moved from England to Canada after having completed his apprenticeship under esteemed British chef Phil Vickery. It was at The Prince Of Wales Hotel, a Four-Diamond CAA/AAA restaurant in Niagara-on-The-Lake, Ontario that he gained exposure to farm-to-table cuisine and realised that, as he says, “simplicity is key to maximising flavours.”
During his career, Colin has been awarded with many prestigious culinary awards. The Fearrington is one of only two inn and restaurant combinations in the U.S. to have the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five Diamond award for both, totaling 10 stars and 10 diamonds. In 2012, Bedford was also named a Grand Chef Relais & Châteaux.
