The Young Chef Competition is a well-established and successful competition organised and promoted by Rotary International in Great Britain & Ireland (Rotary GB&I).
There are three stages to the competition, each designed to support and encourage the development of cookery skills. Some stages may have more than one round.
This competition aims to encourage young people to:
• learn how to cook a healthy meal
• develop food presentation skills
• consider food hygiene issues
• develop organisational and planning skills
• develop an ability to cope in a demanding situation
Who can take part?
The competition is open to all schools and college communities and those who are home educated, along with any other young peoples’ community organisations, for example, community RotaKids, community Interact, Scout Groups, Girl Guides.
Students must between ages 11 and 17 on 31 August 2021. Students in part-time (day release) education are not eligible to participate. The qualifying criteria of all entrants will be checked rigorously; any entrant who does not meet the above conditions will not be allowed to take part.
This competition is intended for amateurs; for the purpose of the competition, an amateur is considered to be a person who is not in full, or regular part time, employment in the catering trade. Eligible entrants who have been temporarily employed by restaurants during the school holidays may take part. The competition is not open to students who are enrolled on a full-time catering course studying for a qualification above “A” level (or equivalent) standard.
For details of the entrants please see our past events page.
