S.Pellegrino Young Chef Competition opens for entries

S.Pellegrino has announced the highly-anticipated return of S.Pellegrino Young Chef, a global competition recognising young culinary talent from across the world.

The competition will take place over 18 months, with the preliminary selection rounds and the local competitions taking place in 2017, followed by the grand final in June 2018, where finalists will compete for the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018 title. The duration of the competition also allows successful shortlisted candidates more time to work alongside their assigned chef mentors to improve their signature dishes and refine their skill set in preparation for the finals.

In addition, applications will now be accepted in English, Spanish, Mandarin Chinese, French and Italian. All candidates are required to understand and speak English, as it is the official language of the competition.

Applications for S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018 open on 1 February 2017. Visit for full details and to register your entry.
