This year's Association of Catering Excellence (ACE) Ready Steady Cook challenge will take on a new format at East Wintergarden in London's Canary Wharf on 22 September.
As well as the new open plan venue, the event will focus on the next generation of foodservice chefs, with teams of two being required to include one chef under the age of 25.
It will also feature additional cooking facilities such as the use of an oven instead of just an induction hob.
The audience will be able to watch the chefs as they progress through the two heats with a large screen placed above the cooking area.
Organisers say the new format will offer better networking and extended supplier opportunities.
Street food stands will also be provided and the event will help support ACE's chosen charity, the Wiggly Worm, which aims to improve health, wellbeing and self-esteem among the vulnerable and disadvantaged.
The ACE membership includes a cross section of managers, chefs, consultants, students and suppliers from the hospitality and foodservice sector.
Tickets cost £48 plus VAT for members and £68 plus VAT for non-members. To book email email@example.com
