Kitchen Nightmares star in Ramsay reunion

Kitchen Nightmares star and restaurateur Justin Rowntree reunited with his former nemesis Gordon Ramsay this week on ITV’s The Nightly Show. Rowntree was the boss of Sheffield’s Runaway Girl restaurant and jazz club when Ramsay visited in 2011 to give it the full Kitchen Nightmares treatment. Whilst Rowntree clashed with the celebrity chef he ultimately took on board his advice, relaunched the restaurant as Silversmiths, won a host of awards and has never looked back.

Every Wednesday volunteers serve a three course lunch and bring people together from the surrounding community around a freshly-cooked meal. Sheffield Live! reporter Baillor Jalloh spoke to Graham Duncan, organiser of the Food Cycle initiative in Sheffield.
