Mövenpick announces finalists for Gourmet Dessert Chef of the Year 2013

Six chefs from a broad spectrum of establishments are set to go head-to-head in a live cook-off at Westminster Kingsway College this September after qualifying as finalists in the second annual Mövenpick Gourmet Dessert Chef of the Year competition.

The final six are: the Savoy's Zhaokun Xu; the Lowry hotel's Sam Pugh; Lexington Catering's Javier Millet; Sevenoaks School's Ben Sulston; Frank O'Connor from Galway Mayo Institute of Technology and Paul Clark from Cumbernauld College.

A partnership between Mövenpick Ice Cream and the Craft Guild of Chefs, the competition is a chance for chefs to put their creative skills to the test and help put desserts back on the menu.

Judge Sarah Frankland, the 2012 Mövenpick Gourmet Dessert Chef, said: "Each recipe created by our finalists is testament to the opportunity desserts give chefs to demonstrate their passion and creative flair. If they all taste as good as they look, it's going to be a very tough decision!"

The winner of the competition will receive a luxury weekend for two to the home of Mövenpick Ice Cream in Switzerland, with two lucky runners up receiving £200 vouchers for a restaurant of their choice.
