IOM restaurateur competing in Young Chef of the World

Afternoon Extras

Monday, November 11th, 2019 - 9 minutes

Chef Pippa Lovell, originally from Leicester, has been making something of a name for herself since moving to the Island. Her restaurant ‘Versa’, in Foraging Vintners, takes the celebration of Manx produce to a whole new level; she features foraged ingredients, cutting down on travel miles but also making sure what is on your plate is as fresh, local and nutritious as it possibly can be.

And her work is being recognised – she was recently featured on BBC Northwest and today (Monday 11th Nov), she is at the European finals of the San Pellegrino Young Chef of the World competition – where she has very definite plans to promote her Island home.
