UK - Daniel Costello from Doncaster narrowly beat Leeds residents Clare King and Daniel Cartwright to be crowned Yorkshire 'Eggs Factor' winner at a cook-off in Leeds.

Daniel, who owns his own courier company, eggcelled at the event, held at Thomas Danby College on 10 September, as part of a competition to find the new ‘Face of Eggs’. There were more than 500 entries to the competition, which have been narrowed down to 12 finalists in each region who will compete across UK kitchens throughout September.

Dean Rogers, the Executive Chef from Oulton Hall, was on hand to judge the finalists on their ability to poach the perfect egg and create a signature dish using British Lion eggs. Winner Daniel whipped up a perfect poached egg followed by his signature dish of Spanish Baked Eggs.

Daniel will now compete against regional winners from across the UK in the Eggs Factor final in London on 6 October. Michelin-starred celebrity chef Paul Merrett will be drawing on his expertise to decide just who will be crowned the ‘Face of Eggs 2008’.
