YOUNG RISOTTO CHEF OF THE YEAR
DO YOU HAVE WHAT IT TAKES?
We understand that our young chefs will be at different stages in the culinary career – some still at Catering College, others already working as Sous chefs or similar in a professional and commercial environment. Some of you will have already cooked risotto and others may never even have tasted it.
We’ll be having regional heats this year – more details here – and after this we will be inviting 8 finalists to cook their chosen dish in front of our judges on 20th January 2020 where the winner will be named the Riso Gallo Young Risotto Chef of the Year.
Our judging panel will be led as always by renowned Consultant Chef Paul Gayler MBE, ably assisted by Danilo Cortellini, Head Chef at the Italian Embassy, Adriano Cavagnini, Executive Chef at the Bulgari Hotel, Jason Morrison Managing Director of Riso Gallo UK, Frances Atkins from the Yorke Arms, one of very few female Michelin Starred Chefs in the UK, and former Professional MasterChef Finalist Davide Degiovanni, Head Chef at Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Café.
