Kent Young Chef Awards

Kent Young Chef Awards

We are thrilled to announce that our very own Executive Head Chef Ewan Simpson has joined the judging panel for the 7th annual Kent Young Chef Awards. 

Ewan, along with the judging panel are now looking for 8 finalists from Kent's budding young cooks or chefs. The closing date for this year's awards is midday October 21st and judging of the main course recipes will take place on October 23rd. The live cook off final and judging will take place on Friday 13th November at The View Restaurant, West Kent College, where two winners will triumph. 

When asked about his expectations are for this year's Kent Young Chef Awards, Ewan says "I think people are exposed to much more higher end food these days with the success of shows like Great British Menu and Masterchef. The general standard of what people do at home is a lot more creative and ambitious so it will be interesting to see what effect this has had on these young chefs and to reflect on what I and my peers were like 12 years ago when I was looking to get into the industry".
