North West Young Chef 2018 open for entries

South Cheshire College will provide the venue for the 2018 final of the North West Young Chef competition organised by Essential Cuisine.

The competition is open to young chefs from across Greater Manchester, Lancashire, Merseyside, Cheshire, Cumbria and Shropshire, to compete for the coveted title.

The winner also receives a seeded place into the national semi-finals, £500 in cash and, newly added this year a weekend for two at Cheshire's Mere Golf Resort & Spa.

The format will comprise two semi-finals: held at Kendal College on the 11 April and Warrington College on the 19 April.

Two chefs, one winner and one runner-up from each semi-final will be sent through to compete in the final scheduled for the 23 May at South Cheshire College.

"The 1-2-3 result of chefs from this competition at the national finals was a magical result for the northwest and an affirmation that the region is brimming with talent - this time around we are delighted to announce South Cheshire College as our new home, while the raising of the age limit simply keeps us in check with the national criteria. As judges we can't wait to see what this year has in store."
