10 in 8 Fine Dining Group provides four of the six chef-mentors to Toque d'Or

Alan Murchison and Chris Horridge are among the six top chefs recruited as mentors for the Nestlé Toque d'Or student catering competition.

The professional chef mentors have been enlisted to help York College - one of the five college teams competing - prepare to serve 100 covers at the BBC Summer Good Food Show in June.

Two other head chefs from Murchison and Horridge's 10 in 8 Fine Dining Group - Paris House's Phil Fanning and Will Holland of La Bécasse - are also among the mentors

The confirmed list of chefs and the team they will support is:

Neil Stephens, managing director at Nestlé Professional, said: "To gather together such a superior mentoring panel is testament to the success of the Nestlé Toque d'Or competition and with this year's high calibre mentors now on board we are looking to the students to make the ‘21st Birthday Year' the best cook off yet."
