Young Pastry Chef 2019 open for entries

The Master Chefs of Great Britain association has opened its Young Pastry Chef 2019, or David Lyell Scholarship, for entries.

The competition is open to anyone aged 23 and under on 1 March 2019 who works in a hotel or restaurant kitchen, banqueting, within any corporate/event catering environment or is a college student.

Entrants are required to submit a plated restaurant dessert for four covers and a chocolate Easter egg for the skill test, both of which they will be expected to create within three and a half hours at the final.

The final will take place at the Claire Clark Academy at Milton Keynes College on 9 April 2019. The six selected finalists will be judged on flavour, presentation, innovation, hygiene and working method.

Judges include chair of judges Ross Sneddon, executive pastry chef at the Balmoral hotel in Edinburgh; Benoit Blin, chef patissier at Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Great Milton, Oxfordshire; Mick Burke; Jerome Dreux, Town & Country's sales development chef; RAF chef corporal and Great British Bake-Off: Crème de la Crème winning team captain Liam Grime; and chef Mark Poynton.

The first prize, or scholarship, includes the opportunity to Felchlin in Switzerland to attend its Condirama course, as well as a £250 cash prize.

Entries should be submitted before 4 February 2018.
