Drakes of Brighton hosted Brighton & Hove Festival of Food and Drink's first ever International Chef Exchange when they welcomed top Chef Audrey Eussen of the Beaumont Hotel restaurant in Maastricht. For one night, Audrey took charge from Andy MacKenzie in the Drakes kitchen and produce a superb six course meal based mainly on ingredients bought from their local Limburgh area in Holland. Organised by writer and food critic Andrew Kay the event was a huge success, both in the kitchen [where the legendary unpredictable temperament of chef's on this occasion saw Andy Mackenzie apparently completely charmed by Audrey Eussen in his kitchen!] and in the sold out restaurant.
