The Craft Guild of Chefs has put a call out for chefs keen to participate in the 2010 Culinary World Cup.
The competition, which takes place from 20-24 November in Luxembourg, pits both individual chefs and teams from 25 countries against each other in hot and cold cooking challenges.
The Culinary Academy, the Craft Guild of Chefs' competition arm, is aiming to enter as many individual participants as possible, in addition to a team of eight experienced competitors and two junior chefs.
Team manager Fergus Martin, who competed in the last World Cup in 2006, gaining a silver medal, says the Academy is currently looking to build the team for this year's competition.
"From personal experience, the World Cup really is an opportunity of a lifetime and the atmosphere is like nothing else," he said. "While we will be putting forward individual entries, this is very much about the team, who we'll expect to get involved every step of the way."
For more information on how to join the Culinary Academy and to express an interest in the Culinary World Cup team, call 020 8948 3870 or visit the Craft Guild of Chefs website.
