Tulkinghorn has never attended the Great Northern Cook-Off. But if he did, he would try to get onto Addleshaw Goddard’s team. The lawyers took the competition by storm, winning four awards, despite calling themselves The Inedibles.

But Addleshaws was not the only firm in attendance. Excellently enough, Pannone’s Andrew Rimmer won ‘The Domestic Goddess’ Award. The Addleshaws team included Leeds private capital partner Pervinder Kaur, as well as Amy Barlow and Samantha Sharples of private bank Coutts. See their menu, left.
