2012 marks the 10th year of the Craft Guild of Chefs graduate awards. The awards recognise a young working chef's culinary excellence, testing their knowledge and skills in a series of challenges. Of the 10 chefs who made it into last year's final exam, only four received the 85% to make the Craft Guild hall of fame, proving that becoming a graduate is no mean feat.
After submitting entries by e-mail, a select few will be asked to take a regional cooking test at University College Birmingham or Westminster Kingsway, London, on 18 July 2012. Chefs who make it through will then be invited to take a final cooking exam at the University of West London (formerly TVU) on 6 September 2012, judged by a panel of top chefs, including Chris Galvin as chairman of examiners.
This year's successful graduates will be announced in front of hundreds of influential guests at a glittering awards luncheon at London's Royal Garden hotel on 18 September 2012.
The deadline for entries is 30 April.
