Following the notable worldwide success of its first edition with more than 3,000 applications submitted, S.Pellegrino has launched Young Chef 2016, the global scouting project to find the best young chef in the world.
Dividing the world into 20 areas and involving around 100 top chefs as jurors across the globe, 20 young chef finalists, 20 chef mentors and a stellar chefs jury, reflects S.Pellegrino’s commitment to supporting emerging talents.
All young chefs across the globe will have the opportunity to apply and the applicants must be no older than 30 and are required to have at least one year of experience working in a restaurant as chefs, sous chefs or chefs de partie. For phase one, applications together with your signature dish details, in English, must be submitted via www.finedininglovers.com.
Phase Two will select the Regional Shortlist and Regional Winner, phase three is the regional finals and the selected ten finalist of the 20 geographical areas will then move on to the local finals where live competitions will be held in each region from May 1st – August 15th.
Finally, phase four will be the grand finale event held on October 13, 2016 in Milan. All the young chef finalists will convene for the intense cooking competition in front of the international panel of judges, the Seven Sages, who will award the S. Pellegrino Young Chef 2016 award.
Applications will be accepted from January – March 2016. Follow the competition via hashtag #SPYoungChef to never miss an update on the event. For more details/ enquiries contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
