Matthew Martin has managed Mother Hubbard’s, which his father owns, since he was 16 and was one of five people selected following a cook off in Leeds.

The judges tested contestants’ knowledge of the preparation and cooking of fish and chips, health and safety and customer service.

Mr Martin said: “My dad has owned Mother Hubbard’s for almost two decades and I remember being four years old, perched on some potatoes watching my dad work and I knew growing up, I wanted to work within the industry.

“Not only is this a massive achievement for myself, but I know my family is proud of me and I think it is important to get more young people involved in the fish and chips industry as it is a British institution and something that we should take pride in.”

Judges will now visit the shop head of the awards ceremony in London on January 24, 2013.
