THE COMPETITION

YOUNG RISOTTO CHEF OF THE YEAR
COMPETITION

WHAT CAN YOU BRING TO THE PASS?

Are you passionate about ingredients?

Do you have the skills to transform them into a sublime plate of food?

Do you have a unique take on a classic dish?

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 some may have never even tasted it.

If you think you have what it takes, live in the UK and are aged between 18 and 25, send us details of your risotto creation along with a photo of the finished dish by 30th November 2018.

We will be inviting 5 finalists to cook their chosen dish in front of our judges on 21st January 2019 where the winner will be named the Riso Gallo Young Risotto Chef of the Year. Judges on the day by renowned chefs Danilo Cortellini, former Professional MasterChef Finalist, Davide Degiovanni, Head Chef at Gordon Ramsay’s Union Street Café and Paul Gayler MBE, former Executive Chef at The Lanesborough and author, Oscar Holgado Head Chef, Angela Hartnett’s Murano Restuarant and Adriano Cavagnini Executive Chef at the Bulgari Hotel in London.
