Global drinks brand S.Pellegrino is extending its Young Chef competition into an educational platform to attract the next generation of chefs.
The S.Pellegrino Young Chef Academy will help individuals from more than 70 countries. All of the candidates selected for the S.Pellegrino Young Chef competition will automatically enter the S.Pellegrino Young Chef Academy, together with their mentors and jurors involved in the contest.
The senior members of the community include chefs Enrico Bartolini, Massimo Bottura, Manu Buffara, Andreas Caminada, Mauro Colagreco, Gavin Kaysen and Clare Smyth, who will share their expertise and pass on their knowledge to the next generation of chefs.
Stefano Bolognese, San Pellegrino international business unit director, said: "We are particularly proud to announce the opening of our S.Pellegrino Young Chef Academy, as a further step to our commitment in shaping the future of gastronomy, together with the most brilliant chef community. The project aims to facilitate talent discovery and connection, with a specific focus on the young generations of chefs, who will be the game-changers of tomorrow.
