The UK’s Most Prestigious Culinary Competitions

The National Chef of the Year and Young National Chef of the Year are much more than chef competitions. These events provide chefs with an exciting opportunity to put themselves in the spotlight and show their culinary talent to the wider hospitality industry. It’s put industry names up in lights, boosted careers and given chefs the chance to follow their dreams.

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 accolades.

Young National Chef of the Year, launched in 2012, represents the most talented pool of young chefs in the UK, taking in winners of regional and national 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.
