All The Chinese You Need To Know

About the Competition

We want to celebrate the rich vein of young culinary talent in the UK.

Asian and Oriental cuisine is fast becoming one of the most popular in the UK. More and more TV food programmes, including BBC Masterchef, are featuring chefs who are using and experimenting with a raft of authentic Oriental ingredients in their dishes. This competition will showcase the dedication and skilful chefs we have coming through in the UK.

Entrants are required to create an Oriental menu using ingredients of their choice.

The competition is judged in two stages: a paper-based entry for the first round (entries must be submitted by 4th March 2017), followed by a competitive cook-off with high profile judges at the University College Birmingham on Wednesday 5th April 2017. Please click here to download the application form.

The winners are announced at an official awards dinner at the University College Birmingham following the competitive cook-off.
