Turns out, there’s none! There exists a small pot of genuine opportunity to win competitions on the Internet without having to sign your life away and provide details that entail you giving away your bank account details to the highest bidder behind the scenes.
Pocket-lint & GB Chefs – a formidable team
The prize, to win the chance to cook with two-Michelin-rated chef Bruno Loubet followed by a meal for two as part of the Pocket-lint Christmas Spectacular, did exactly what it said on the tin. Just ask @jonny162 from London who has scooped the prestigious prize.
Cynics may suggest, as the terms were: in order to be in the hat you have to tweet the hashtag #plxmas and follow @pocketlint and @gbchefs, that the reward is simply a cheap marketing tactic, but for jonny162, it could just turn his life around.
Who are the ‘Great British Chefs’?
The name ‘Bruno Loubet’ does not automatically ring synonymous with being a chef of UK origin, and you’d be right. Bruno came here to ply his culinary trade in the early eighties, straight out of National Service en France.
The theme behind GB Chefs is to encapsulate all the ideas brought to the UK by chefs working on our shores and utilise their site as a fulcrum to synergise everything expressive and wholesome about continental cooking and deliver it to the UK public.
