Time is running out for chefs to put their skills to the test at next year's Salon Culinaire at the Hospitality Show.
Entrants need to serve up completed entry forms by 1 December to ensure they don't miss out on the competition.
Salon Culinaire will once again be one of the highlights of the industry event, which takes place on 21-23 January at NEC Birmingham, when participants will have the chance to show off their expertise in front of an audience of food professionals.
Salon Culinaire will feature new Live Theatre classes including Classical Fish Dish, sponsored by Association Culinaire Francaise, Major International Soup & Sauce Challenge, Nestle Toque d'Or 2013 Heats and a Seasonal Menu Masterclass, in association with Rational.
La Parade des Chefs - the fine-dining restaurant element - will take the "best of the best" as its theme, inviting previous gold medal-winning teams from the past three years to cook for visitors every day of the show.
Chefs interested in participating at Salon Culinaire should download the Schedule of Competitions and entry forms on the Salon Culinaire page at www.hospitalityshow.co.uk.
