Nine teams progress to UK Young Restaurant Team of the Year final
David McKown, director of the competition, said: “We had a decision to make since our teams might not have been in a position to practice or compete in April due to COVID-19.”
The 27 competitors (each team is made up of two chefs and one front of house) and nine mentors will benefit from the experience of the final. The nine finalist teams will all be invited to attend the Gala Awards Dinner that is part of the Skills for Chefs Conference.
The theme for this year’s competition is French Gastronomy and the guest judge will be Pierre Koffmann.
The nine teams advancing to the final include:
- City of Glasgow College
- The Black Swan Hotel at Ravenstonedale
- Loughborough College
- Leeds City College
- Rafters Restaurant in Sheffield
- Farnborough College
- Stafford College
- North Warwickshire & South Leicestershire College
- The Sheffield College
A grant from the Savoy Education Trust has enabled the change of date to happen.
