The Search is On!
The hunt for creative and talented chefs has begun again with the launch of the South West Chef of the Year 2014.
The competition, introduced at the Source Taste of the West Food and Drink Trade Show at Westpoint, Exeter, is open to professional and amateur chefs alike, and split into different sections. It offers two classes for professional chefs (senior and junior), one class for junior chefs (under 16 years of age) and another class for home cooks, for which keen amateur chefs are asked to enter a favourite main course dish. Last year’s winner Nathan Cornwell, the chef de partie at the Michelin-starred Lucknam Park near Bath, recreated his winning dish roast loin of venison, squash purée, Savoy greens, red wine shallots and cherries. A highly-respected panel of 13 judges, chaired by Michael Caines, will once again decide on the worthy winner who will be announced in October.
The South West Chef of the Year competition is staged by Michael Caines MBE and Taste of the West.
