Eight chef teams have been announced as finalists in Essential Cuisine's Britain's Best Brigade competition 2017.
The finalists have been chosen from eight sectors: restaurants, pubs, schools, healthcare, universities and colleges, event catering, and B&I and hotels.
The eight teams are: Madingley Hall; Park Community School; Crowne Plaza Heythrop Park Hotel; the Cosy Club; the Rose and Crown; Anisha Grange; Sue Brady Catering; and Restaurant Associates.
Following a paper submission, the entries were judged by a panel including: executive head chef at Hertfordshire's the Grove, Harry Lomas; and executive development chef at the University of Warwick, Graham Crump.
The final eight teams have created a short video to showcase their kitchen.
A public vote is now open to decide on the winner. To vote go to www.bestbrigades.co.uk before 27 June 2017.
The winning team will win £1,000 cash plus an exclusive menu development masterclass with a leading UK chef.
