Search begins for Master of Culinary Arts 2017

The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts is to launch the eighth Master of Culinary Arts (MCA) at the end of the month.

Based on the Meilleur Ouvrier de France, the MCA recognises excellent head chefs, pastry chefs and restaurant managers in the UK.

Applicants must have at least 10 years experience with three of those at senior level, the ability to demonstrate their skills under pressure and provide evidence of contributing to the training and development of others.

Royal Academy of Culinary Arts chairman and Ritz executive chef John Williams said: "The MCA is the highest honour in the catering industry; it examines the very finest details in service, pastry and kitchen and is the pinnacle of each discipline. For me, a Master of Culinary Arts is a person who strives for perfection in their profession and has the grace and elegance to promote our craft to the next generation."
