Phil Drury, 47, Head of Business at Stafford Audi, A34 Stone Road, Stafford is used to picking up motor industry awards as part of the family owned and run Swansway Group, but his latest win is certainly a departure from the norm!
Along with wife Allison, Phil took part in hit Channel 4 show, Couples Come Dine With Me, taking on two other couples and winning the £1000 prize.
A delighted Phil commented;
“The mad thing is we don’t cook an awful lot, as we both work long hours, but I think it was our natural charm and the fact that we really put a lot of effort into our menu that won the day”!
Phil and Alli’s menu included a scrumptious starter of warm pear salad with scallops and chorizo; main course of pan fried duck breast with redcurrant jus; and a croissant, white chocolate and whisky pud. The talented twosome won by one point and would recommend the experience to everyone.
“Like I said we’re not Masterchef standard cooks, but we love entertaining and enjoy a laugh; I think we were probably very lucky in that the other two couples were also great fun, sometimes you see a bit of sniping and one-upmanship but there was none of that in our episode”, added Phil.
