Entry for 2011 Young Chef Young Waiter has now passed.
Welcome to the Young Chef Young Waiter competition. Here you can check out all the images from past events, read the very latest YCYW tweets and of course find out how you enter the Young Chef Young Waiter competition.
Young Chef Young Waiter is the longest-established competition in the hospitality industry and its winners are among the most admired. Organised by the Restaurant Association, which is part of the British Hospitality Association, the competition has emphasised the association’s commitment to nurturing young talent since it was launched in 1985. And with reason.
But Young Chef Young Waiter is more than a competition it’s an education. Reflecting the British Hospitality Association’s aim to encourage higher standards in the industry YCYW not only matches the skills of talented individuals against each other but also enables them to gain extra knowledge and greater confidence, boosting their career prospects. Few who enter do not emerge wiser and more skilled.
This year, we are extending the competition to make new awards in the two regional heats and in the national finals. With more accolades to be won and more good reasons for managers to encourage their most talented individuals to compete in this premier competition event
Chefs and Waiters who wish to compete must be aged 25 or under (up until 31 December 2011). All entrants must also be in full time employment within the UK to enter the competition.
