Professional 'MasterChef' winner crowned

Londoner Steve Groves has triumphed in BBC Two cookery series MasterChef: The Professionals.

Groves beat Marianne Lumb and Daniel Graham in last night's final. In their last challenge, all three chefs had to cook a three course meal for judges Michel Roux Jr and Greg Wallace.

The 28-year-old's winning menu included a starter of roast quail with scotch egg, morels and asparagus and a main of venison loin with potato rosti, watercress puree and roasted beetroot. His pudding was a mille feuille of raspberries and bitter chocolate with lavender and honey ice cream.

"Steve has all the talents required to make it to the top," said Roux Jr.

Wallace added: "I have absolutely no doubt that Steve is going to go on and have a very glittering career and will be a serious player in the culinary world."

The Essex-based cook has vowed to "become the best chef" and wants to run his own restaurant serving British food.
