Wirral chef of the Year

Restaurants and eateries in Wirral are invited to nominate one of their own chefs for ‘Wirral Young Chef of the Year 2016’. 

Once again Wirral Metropolitan College is proud to be hosting this prestigious annual competition which continues to encourage our young chefs to make their mark in a competitive but ever expanding industry. The competition will also provide a platform from which chefs can highlight their skills and develop their careers. The competition should also help to celebrate the quality of the produce available in the North West.

Wirral restaurants and members of the Wirral Tourism Business Network are invited to nominate a young chef who works in their establishment aged between 16 and 25 years (on or before 1st January 2016), to take part in this year’s competition. 

Please complete the nomination form to enter your chef (or yourself)

Nominations close on 2nd October 2015 when all the nomination forms will be assessed by a panel of chef/lecturers at the college and up to six finalists will be selected to compete for the title of Wirral Young Chef of the Year 2016, the winner of which will be announced at the Wirral Tourism Awards in April 2016. 


Each of the chosen finalists will host a Young Chef of the Year evening on a Tuesday night in their restaurant, to showcase their skills, expertise and knowledge. The Young Chef will create a three course menu for his/her night using any ingredients they wish, though they should give evidence of using local/ regional and seasonal ingredients where possible.

Customers will be invited to reserve a table at these evenings, at a cost of £18.95 per person inc. VAT for the three course meal, which is paid directly to the participating restaurant.

Diners will be asked to score on the quality of the meal.  The public score will represent 50% of the score.  In addition, all five finalists will take part in a ‘Cook-Off in March/April here at WMC which will be judged by two renowned Chef Judges, this will represent the other 50% of the score.

We hope you will take this opportunity to nominate a young chef working in your restaurant.  Listed below are the substantial benefits to the finalists taking part in this prestigious competition:


• Inclusion within the WMC page of the Wirral News, providing your young chef and restaurant with free marketing.
• A framed certificate, which can be displayed in your restaurant, which will be presented to your Young Chef at a photo call during his/her designated night.

 
• The opportunity to raise the profile of your restaurant through association with this popular and prestigious initiative, enabling you to showcase your restaurant and attract additional custom from the substantial following of the competition.
• To be part of a competition that motivates and empowers ambitious young chefs.
• Each Young Chef finalist will receive one free ticket to the Wirral Tourism Awards Dinner in April.
• The winner of this competition will take the prestigious title ‘Wirral Young Chef of the Year 2016’.
