The winning chef will go forward to compete in the European heats of the Bocuse d’Or, due to take place in June 2020. He or she will also have the opportunity to complete a funded stage in a highly respected British or European restaurant.

To compete in the Bocuse d’Or is one of the toughest culinary challenges for any chef and to prepare them, each of the finalists will receive coaching and mentoring from the UK culinary team – including Adam Bennett MCA, John Williams OBE and Bocuse d’Or UK candidate 2019, Tom Phillips.

The Bocuse d’Or UK Academy has selected a panel of high profile chefs, from the UK and beyond with experience of the Bocuse d’Or, to judge the chefs. The judges will look for culinary technique and creativity, complexity where appropriate and harmony of combinations within the dish.
