Brixton Village has announced a new two-tiered incubator scheme, giving both professionals and amateur chefs a chance to open their own restaurant, as reported by Eater.

The incubator will be judged by James Cochran, the Great British Menu winner and chef-owner of 1251 Islington, Claire Ptak, baker and owner of Violet Cakes in Hackney, Yasmin Khan, cookbook author, and Jackson Boxer, chef-restaurateur at St Leonards, Brunswick House and soon, Orasay.

The two-tiered contest will be open to amateur chefs across Greater London, and professionals from the Lambeth area.

Along with a six-month residency in Brixton Village, winners will also receive mentorship in areas such as financial management, marketing and intellectual property – the latter of which judge James Cochran was burnt by last year.

Alistair Maddox, director of Brixton Village, said: “Brixton has a long history of entrepreneurship we are keen to reflect this in our custodianship of the market. Brixton Kitchen is a way to celebrate food, community and support entrepreneurship here in the heart of Brixton.

“By investing in local innovation we’re hoping to realise our vision for Brixton Village as a cultural and creative space where existing traders thrive, new traders can be established and locals and visitors can continuously discover new experiences and homegrown talent.”

The deadline for entries is 17 February 2019.
