Published on Dec 1 2012 2:40 PM in Technology
Knorr is calling on all budding Blumenthals, fledgling Fulvios, nifty Nigellas and wannabe Pierre Whites for the Knorr Student Chef of the Year 2013 competition. The competition will see student chefs from catering colleges in the Republic of Ireland – and for the first time in Northern Ireland – go head-to-head as they battle it out for the coveted title of Knorr Student Chef of the Year. The top prize includes a fabulous trip to Girona in Spain where the lucky winner will dine in style at the three Michelin-starred El Cellar de Can Roca in Girona, recently voted the second best restaurant in the world. Run by Unilever Food Solutions, the Knorr Student Chef of the Year is the biggest competition of its kind in Ireland and remains an opportunity for chefs of the future to showcase their talent, love of food, creativity and innovation in front of some of Ireland’s leading food professionals. The theme of this year’s competition is ‘seductive nutrition’, to coincide with the recent launch of Unilever Food Solutions’ third World Menu Report, which highlighted to need to reduce calories of dishes without compromising on taste. Rather than creating a new ‘healthy’ dish, students will be challenged with taking a popular dish and giving it a healthy twist.
