Seventh year of Wing Yip young chef competition

The Wing Yip young chef competition – now in its seventh year – has been launched. It is open to chefs and catering students across the UK and Ireland who are aged between 18 and 25.

There are two stages: a written entry, including an Oriental recipe of choice, and a live cook-off among the finalists at University College Birmingham (UCB) on 4 April.

The winner will receive a £750 cash prize, as well as a stint with MasterChef finalist Larkin Cen at his restaurant, Woky Ko.

The judging panel comprises: Peter Griffiths, president of the British Culinary Federation; Michelin starred chef Glynn Purnell; and Larkin Cen.

Wing Yip director Brian Yip said: “The competition has firmly established itself in the culinary calendar. It offers an exciting opportunity for budding chefs to gain hands-on experience in Oriental cooking while gaining industry knowledge from renowned chefs.”

Wing Yip has sites in Birmingham, north London Manchester and Croydon.
