Six students from UK catering colleges have been named as finalists for British Poultry Student Chef of the Year, which will see the students compete in a head-to-head cook off on June 1st at University College Birmingham.

The students were required to create a starter and main course using British turkey meat. The winning dishes will be recreated at the British Poultry Awards ceremony on September 14th at Sheraton Park Lane Hotel.

Tony Fitt, food and beverage director from The Sheraton Park Lane Hotel and award judge, said: “We are delighted to be holding the 2017 British Poultry Awards at our hotel and it’s a great pleasure to be involved in the judging of the Student Chef Competition.

“The winning students will gain valuable experience working with our team here.”

The winner will receive a £300 Russums catering voucher, with £500 going to the winner’s college, two days work experience at The Sheraton Park Lane Hotel, and the opportunity to have their dish served at the British Poultry Awards.

The British Poultry Council launched the British Poultry Awards this year to replace the British Turkey Awards.
