The 2018 winner of the BBC cooking competition MasterChef and former bank manager, Kenny Tutt, is to open his first restaurant in Worthing called Pitch.
The menu, created with ingredients sourced locally, will focus on classic British dishes with a twist and feature Kenny Tutt’s own take on egg and chips alongside doughnuts with whipped goats cheese and cereal panna cotta with peanut butter. Cream teas and seafood will also be available. The wine list is yet to be unveiled.
Hailed by MasterChef judges as a “brilliant champion” for his unusual dishes, Tutt wants his first venture to be “somewhere people can relax and feel comfortable in an atmosphere that still feels special, without that stiff upper lip attitude”. His food will pay homage to his home town of London.
Located on Worthing’s Warwick Street, the former site of Italian restaurant Nonna’s Kitchen, Pitch will cover two floors and include a private dining room, with plans to open a cookery school on the top floor later this year. Pitch will open in May.
