Buoy and Oyster chef Stephen McClarty is to take part in new six-part series for BBC Two.

“The Brigade” will take a crew of undiscovered talent from British catering, under the leadership of distinguished chef Jason Atherton and transform their careers, turning them into a Kitchen Brigade to take on the best in the world.

Each week ten chefs will be trained and mentored by Jason as they travel to the heartland of the finest cooking destinations in Europe, where they will have a week to immerse themselves in the local culture and learn the local cooking. As the series progresses from country to country the challenges will get tougher and at the end of each week The Brigade will go head-to-head with a rival kitchen in a cook-off.

Stephen has been working at local Margate restaurant Buoy and Oyster as Junior Sous chef to head chef and owner Simon Morriss.

“We are so pleased for Steve and can’t wait to watch him on the show. One of the best parts of running the restaurant has been working with local chefs and young talent here in Thanet and watching them develop their skills and capabilities in the kitchen. Many of our kitchen team studied at East Kent College and continue to excel in their careers within Kent’s continually developing food scene. Steve is a great character and we are sure he will be good fun to watch. We can’t wait to see how he got on and are sure he brought some Margate charm to the programme.” Simon Morriss
