Wing Yip’s Young Chef of the Year 2014 competition offers aspiring cooks the chance to showcase their culinary talent, develop their skills and win a once in a lifetime trip to Hong Kong. The competition is going nationwide this year and applicants aged between 18 and 25 years who are employed in the hospitality industry or training at college or university are invited to enter.
Entrants will be required to create an Oriental menu using ingredients of their choice. The panel of judges which includes TV Chef, Ching He Huang, Michelin-starred Birmingham chef, Glynn Purnell, and British Culinary Federation President Peter Griffiths, will put the finalists through their paces.
The competition will be judged in two stages: a paper-based entry for the first round (closing date 10 January 2014), followed by a competitive cook-off at the University College Birmingham on 21 February 2014.
The winners will be announced at an official awards dinner at the University College Birmingham following the competitive cook-off.
