It’s time for our chefs to shine once again! Have you got what it takes to cook your way to the top?

The challenge to find Sodexo’s Chef of the Year 2019 has begun, with heats soon taking place across the UK and Ireland. Eight finalists will then represent Sodexo at The Great Hospitality Show 2019 in the prestigious Sodexo Chef of the Year competition, which will take place at the NEC, Birmingham, on 22 January 2019.

In preparation for the grand final, each segment is holding heats to determine who will go forward. Segment executive chefs – who are National Craft Forum representatives – will be running the heats and confirming the lucky finalists from each segment.

The heats will be completed by 9 November in time for the finalists mentor development day on 29 November at Unilever Food Solutions, Leatherhead.
