Essential Cuisine has kicked off its search for Britain's Best Brigade 2016, with the stock company calling on kitchens to represent eight regions across the UK with a prize of £1,000 cash plus a bespoke menu development masterclass on offer.
Entries will be judged by a respected panel of chefs, with eight regional representatives being chosen to bring their paper entries to life in the form of a 60-second video which will then be put to a public vote to decide which should be crowned as Britain's best.
Nigel Crane, managing director for Essential Cuisine, explained the rationale behind the competition: "Teamwork is the element that elevates good chef teams to best brigades. Supreme skill and fantastic food are incredibly important factors in the success of an outlet, but in the heat of service, when the pressure is on, it is a solid team ethic that will carry you through to deliver brilliant dishes on time, every time.
Last year we saw something very special and were able to crown a highly talented bunch of chefs from The Heritage Motor Centre, in Warwickshire. If you think your brigade has what it takes to top 2015's crop, then I urge you to enter today."
