The UK’s Most Prestigious Culinary Competitions

The National Chef of the Year & Young National Chef of the Year competitions will once again shine a spotlight on the fresh talent coming out of the kitchen. 

Since The National Chef of the Year’s launch in 1972, previous winners including Gordon Ramsay, Alyn Williams and Mark Sargeant have seen how it helps fast-track careers to put winners firmly on the map, creating many opportunities including wider industry and consumer recognition and a host of culinary accolade. 

Young National Chef of the Year, launched in 2012, represents the most talented pool of young chefs in the UK, taking in the winners of young chef competitions from the competitions across the UK. 

Only the best, most innovative and creative chefs get a shot at the title – and an award that opens doors to future success.
