Calling All Young Chefs!Written by Shamari Steele
Not only that but the successful candidate will also get to demo alongside the company’s brigade of chefs for the day, as well as being treated to a dinner with an overnight stay in the capital with a plus 1 guest.
If you’re a working or aspiring student chef aged between 18 and 23, we want to see your recipe idea for an innovative new creation that twins two of the foodservice world’s biggest current trends – patisserie and food on-the go.
You’ll have one of eight base products – sourced from Coup de pates’ semi-prepared range – from which to build a stunner.
From there, it is up to you to use your flair, creativity and any supplementary garnishes or ingredients to craft a patisserie item that can be enjoyed ‘on the go’. Four finalists will then be chosen to bring their paper entries to life in a cook-off at Coup de pates headquarters in London’s Covent Garden during May.
The winning chef will then be offered the chance to create a product worthy of sale at the greatest restaurant festival in the world – Taste of London. In addition, the winner will get to work on the stand, alongside the team to soak up the incredible atmosphere for themselves.
