Academy of Culinary Arts' Annual Awards of Excellence 2013 open for entries

The Academy of Culinary Arts is now accepting entries for the Annual Awards of Excellence 2013.

The awards, open to young people throughout the hospitality industry, recognise and encourage the most talented chefs and front of house staff across the country.

Since it began in 1983 over 400 young people have achieved the award. Heston Blumenthal is the honorary president of the awards.

To enter, applicants must be working full-time in the UK as a chef, pastry chef or waiter and should be aged between 20 and 26 on 31 December 2012.

Last year, Ian Musgrave, chef de partie at the Ritz, won the young chef of the year award, with Romain Crozat, chef de rang at the Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows, picking up the young waiter of the year title. Melissa Paul, apprentice chef at William Curley, was named the young pastry chef of the year.
