The new restaurant will be named Pitch and will be opened on the town’s Warwick Street in May. The restaurant will span two floors, including a private dining room, with the top floor dedicated to Tutt’s cooking school. The menu at Pitch is still under construction, however example dishes have included doughnuts with whipped goats’ cheese, toasted hazelnut and thyme jam, ham, egg and chips and chocolate cereal.
Tutt said: “My favourite thing about food and cooking is the way that it brings people together, so opening up my own restaurant is a dream come true. The fact that I am doing so in my home town of Worthing is the cherry on the top. I’m so excited to open the doors of Pitch in May, I can’t wait to share the dishes I’m creating.
“I’m working hard on the menus at the moment and am thoroughly enjoying getting out into the countryside and meeting with my wonderful producers.”
