Westside’s culinary competition Young Chef of the Year 2018 sponsored by My Fathers Heart is now open for entries

Restauranteurs of Sheffield, do you have a bright young thing working in your kitchen who is shaping up to become the next Jamie Oliver, Gordon Ramsey or Monica Galetti?


If you do, now’s the time to shout about it, because Westside and My Fathers Heart are staging a fantastic competition to find the Young Chef of the Year 2018.


The competition is open to all restaurants in the Sheffield and North Derbyshire region and all entries must be under the age of 25 on 1 June 2018.


Four finalists will be invited to a MasterChef-style cooking competition in the state-of-the-art kitchens at My Fathers Heart on Saturday 12 May. That’s their opportunity to create their signature main course, which will be judged by a panel of culinary experts.


My Fathers Heart, designers and makers of the region’s finest bespoke, handmade kitchens, bedrooms and furniture, regularly host glamorous events in its award-winning showroom. It proved to be the perfect venue to stage the inaugural Young Chef of the Year event in 2017.


The results will be announced at the Westside Restaurant Awards on Monday 5 June 2018, an event which is fast becoming the Oscars of the local restaurant scene.


So now it’s down to the head chefs and restaurateurs across the region to nominate their young kitchen stars for this prestigious event.


If you employ a bright young chef with the talent and drive to reach the top, let them know.


Incidentally, last year’s shortlist of talented young kitchen stars was all-male. We know there are some fantastic female chefs out there so please help them take the spotlight in 2018.
