Entries Open For National Chef Of The Year

3rd Mar 2011

The Craft Guild of Chefs' National Chef of the Year (NCOTY) competition is open to all chefs over the age of 23 who work in any sector of the catering industry. This includes hotels, restaurants, pubs, universities and contract caterers. The crème de la crème in the industry will meet in a live final to be held at the Restaurant Show at Earls Court 2, London, on Tuesday, October 11 2011. The competition, which has now switched to an annual format, has helped support the careers of many past winners including Gordon Ramsay, Mark Sargeant, Kevin Viner, Simon Hulstone and last year's winner Hrishikesh Desai of the Lucknam Park Hotel, near Bath. The key aim of the competition is to celebrate the multicultural nature of the UK and the revised format, which was introduced last year, is helping to showcase that desire.

This year the categories will be divided up as follows:
Asian/Oriental
Modern British/European
Rest of the World/Other

Contestants must get their ideas down on paper for a three-course lunch menu for four people. Entries must be in by Thursday, May 12 2011. From the paper judging on June 10, 40 successful entrants will be invited to compete in one of five semi finals to be held at prestigious culinary training centres in London, Portsmouth and Sheffield between August 29 and September 16. The winner of each semi final will be announced on the day.
