2010 Roux Scholarship opens for entries

The 2010 Roux Scholarship is now open for entries with a three-month stage at a three-Michelin starred restaurant and a £5,000 cash prize on offer to the winner.

Chefs wishing to take part in the competition, now in its 27th year, must submit a recipe using five different types of shellfish for the first stage. Full details are available on the Roux Scholarship website.

The regional finals will take place in March next year and the five national finalists will receive £1,000 each in cash thanks to the Savoy Educational Trust.

Judges include TV chef James Martin; Andrew Fairlie; David Nicholls; Gary Rhodes and Brian Turner, who will be joined by the Roux brothers and their sons Michel Jnr and Alain.

Past Roux Scholars include Simon Hulstone, André Garrett, Sat Bains and Andrew Fairlie.

This year's winner, Hrishikesh Desai, head chef of The Brasserie at Lucknam Park in Wiltshire, is the first scholar to take a stage outside of Europe at Thomas Keller's three-Michelin-starred French Laundry in Yountville, Napa Valley, in California.

Commenting on the Roux Scholarship, Michel Roux Snr said: "The classic methods are our foundations and we draw on the richness of the past masters to inspire new ideas and creativity.

"This is why we believe that knowledge of the classics is a fundamental base from which our Scholars can build and become the creative talent of tomorrow."
