The BCF Student Cook and Serve Team Challenge is a competition open to full and part-time students with no age restrictions.
The competition will be held on Wednesday 17 April at the Wisemore Campus at Walsall College.
Each team will comprise two chefs and one waiter/waitress and they will have two hours to prepare, cook and serve a three-course menu for four covers, including two covers for guests, one for judging and the other for photography.
The menu comprise a vegetarian starter, a main course using a crown of corn-fed chicken, and a dessert of the competitor's choice.
Competitors are asked to use at least one Essential Cuisine product in their chosen menu. A range of products will be provided on the day.
Chefs will be judged on culinary skills shown, working methods, portion size, taste, temperature of dishes, presentation and timing, while front-of-house will be judged on table presentation, greeting and communication and the serving of food, water and wine.
All student entries must be accompanied with approval from the lecturer/mentor emailed to Andrew Sage at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The closing date for entries is Monday 18 March.
