A CHEF at a Michelin starred restaurant in Bray is down to the final six for the prestigious Roux Scholarship.

Oli Williamson, a chef at Heston Blumenthal's The Fat Duck served up a winning combination of hake, clams and leeks at the regional semis last month for judges Alain Roux, Michel Roux Jnr and Angela Hartnett.

The local chef now bids to win the scholarship, which includes £6,0000 and an all expenses paid placement in a three Michelin star restaurant anywhere in the world.
