British Student Culinary Championships extends deadline for entries

Written by: Edward Waddell
Entries to the British Student Culinary Championships (BSCC), which replaced the Wessex Salon Culinaire for 2020, have been extended to 21 October 2020.

The online cooking competition will take place on 27 October and it aims to give student chefs a first taste of competition experience.

The competition is divided into categories including live cold, restaurant and bakery. Each competition has its own judging criteria and is marked independently by judges.  

A separate entry form must be completed by each competitor and sent to the Craft Guild of Chefs.

The awards will be made to the standard achieved: 

  • Gold award= 90% or more
  • Silver award= 75% or more 
  • Bronze award= 65% or more 
  • Certificate of merit= 55% or more 

Andrew Green, chief executive of the Craft Guild of Chefs, commented: “The change of name reflects the growth of competition as it attracts students from all over the UK. 

“We hope this move will encourage even more young chefs to enter for the chance to get their first taste of a professional competition and to showcase their culinary skills.”
