Are you up to the challenge?

Behind the Competition
The competition, now in its 23rd year, targets teams of three full-time student chefs studying hospitality or catering college courses across the whole of the UK and Ireland.

The team behind the Challenge is committed to working with colleges and lecturers to provide a platform for the next generation of chefs to build and showcase their culinary skills and gain invaluable experience within a well-established competition format.

Raising the profile of the hospitality industry as a whole to attract new chefs

Competing provides a whole new string to your bow, allows you to showcase your own ideas, be recognised by your peers and have the opportunity to develop new skills and experience diverse food styles and presentations. There is also a personal sense of pride.

Competing also offers opportunities to establish greater relationships with suppliers through sponsorship, to network with chefs you would never dream of meeting ordinarily, and compete against some of the world’s finest talent.
