South African Young Chef competition opens for entries

The eighth South African Young Chef of the Year competition is open for entries with new competition requirements.

For 2020, fruit grower Hortgro is asking young UK chefs to submit one main course showcasing South African stone fruit. Six finalists will then experience a masterclass at London's [High Timber] restaurant ( followed by a cook-off final.

The final will require the young chefs to cook their submitted main course and create a starter or dessert from a mystery box showcasing South African top fruit.

The winner will travel to Franschhoek, South Africa and join celebrity chef, Reuben Riffel and John Norris-Rogers, head chef at La Petite Colombe, for a week's split stage and can expect to be fully involved in the running of the two award-winning restaurants, gain a deeper understanding of how each operation works, and develop their knowledge of South African fine dining.
