Craft Guild of Chefs launches 2021 British Student Culinary Championships

Written by: Edward Waddell
Students across Britain are being encouraged to enter the British Student Culinary Championships (BSCC), which will take place from 26-27 October 2021.

The competition was re-branded from Wessex Salon Culinaire in 2020 and retains its heritage and importance as a key platform for student chefs to gain their first taste of competitive cooking.

Andrew Green, Craft Guild of Chefs chief executive, commented: “It’s fantastic to welcome back the British Student Culinary Championships, which is the largest student-based catering competition in the country.

“The Guild has always been at the forefront of developing and nurturing chef talent and this championship is an important step in that process for our young chefs.”

The championships include several classes, which are judged independently with standards of Gold, Silver and Bronze awarded to those that reach the relevant specification. Categories and entry forms will be available shortly on the Craft Guild of Chefs’ website.

Competition director Steve Scuffell, added: “Now in its 23rd year, the championships are back with live and static categories, and a brand-new food photography class.

“We know how much these competitions mean to students, and how much they can help in developing career opportunities, so I am delighted we are able to run the event this year.”
