Craft Guild of Chefs Graduate Awards
The Graduate Awards are now open for chefs aged 23 and under. The competition will test and improve their skills through an examination process which includes a paper entry, heats and final examination. The final exam involves creating a ‘mystery basket’ dish, classic main course and a dessert.

Rotary Young Chef Competition 2017
Rotary International runs a series of regional competitions for catering students aged 11-17. The competition is specifically for young people in full time catering education - you will unfortunately not be able to enter if you work full or part time in catering. The regional heats feed into a national competition, sponsored by Fillipo Berio. Previous winners have received prizes such as work experience in exclusive restaurants, and last year's winner won a trip to Tuscany.
