Some 20 colleges in the UK have qualified for the semi-finals of the Country Range student chef challenge, held in conjunction with the Craft Guild of Chefs.
Competitors – from among 67 who originally entered – have to create a three-course, three-cover menu with the theme of ‘Healthy Gourmet Fine Dining’.
Eight teams will then take part in the final, which is being held on 15 March in the Live Theatre of ScotHot in Glasgow, Scotland’s biggest food, drink and hospitality show.
Country Range Group managing director Coral Rose said: “Interest was terrific for this year’s challenge and the standard of applications was incredible, which made the judging extremely tough. The judges at the final are in for a treat!”
