Andy Barnett, the owner of the Sushi Daily franchise in Asda Gloucester, will see a special sushi menu he created roll out across the UK after he won a national competition.
The new menu, aptly named The Winning Combo, includes existing Sushi Daily recipes but in a combination that has never been tried before.
His creation will be available from August at Sushi Daily counters at select Asda and Waitrose supermarkets across the UK.
Andy, who has worked at high end hotels such as St Pierre Park Hotel in Guernsey and The Chester Grosvenor Hotel, owned by the Duke of Westminster, said: “I’m so excited to be the winner of this competition and I’m really looking forward to seeing this product roll out across the UK.
“I love training my team and I love the theatre of sushi making, so it is an absolute joy to come to work every day. I must meet about 100 people a week who have never tried sushi, so it’s fun to be able to introduce them to the dish.
“The way the flavours combine is interesting and like a jigsaw puzzle, where the experience is different depending on the combination of pieces and the order in which you eat them.”
The box consists of two salmon nigiri, two spicy cali rolls, two wakame cali rolls and two California maki, priced at £7.75, which will be handcrafted by Sushi Daily’s artisans.
The competition was organised by KellyDeli, which is the parent company of popular food to go franchise Sushi Daily and was aimed at Sushi Daily artisans working nationwide.
Ian Roberts, KellyDeli managing director, said: “We chose Andy’s winning formula because it delivers on visual appeal and offers a fantastic variety. He also gave careful thought to how long it would take our partners to create, ensuring it wouldn’t add in a layer of extra complexity to their day.”
