Tickets are now available to the gala dinner for the inaugural Asian Junior Chefs Challenge created by the Master Chefs of Great Britain and Cyrus Todiwala, chef patron of Café Spice Namaste.
A four-course dinner will be cooked by Todiwala, and Café Spice's senior chef Manpreet Singh Ahuja at the Hilton London Heathrow T5 on 20 October.
Todiwala who has recently launched his own TV show, The Incredible Spice Men with Scottish chef Tony Singh, has promised a menu with pan-Asian influences made from ingredients drawn from British farmers and producers.
The evening will conclude the competition process and will see crowned the Asian Junior Chef team of the year. The finalists will have completed a demanding selection process which includes a 2½ hour cook-off and a 10-minute presentation by each of the finalists.
The winners will be chosen from among the three teams representing some of the UK's top catering colleges; Westminster Kingsway College, University College Birmingham and the University of West London.
"Since we launched the Asian Junior Chefs Challenge in February this year, there has been great interest and excitement, for which I and the Master Chefs of Great Britain are so grateful.
"I'm especially delighted at the calibre of our judging panel and how each and every one invited seized the opportunity to be involved. I really do want as many people as possible to join us in celebration. Then the work begins all over again for next year."
Tickets cost £70 per person and £650 per table of ten. Proceeds will go to the charities and work of the Master Chefs of Great Britain. To purchase tickets contact Sue McGeever at firstname.lastname@example.org.
