As of today there are only 38 days left to get your entry in for Coeliac UK’s 2010 Gluten-free Chef of the Year competition.
Professional chefs and catering students are invited to compile recipes for a three course gluten-free menu for four people that can be prepared in 90 minutes. Shortlisted entrants will be invited to recreate their menu in a 90 minute live cook off to serve to four judges in November.
Judging the competition is resident celebrity chef on ITV’s This Morning and author of Seriously Good! Gluten-Free Cooking, Phil Vickery. Entries will be judged according to originality, taste, texture, seasonality and balance. In the taste test, judges will be looking for dishes that aren’t noticeably gluten-free.
Professional cooks could win a stage at Gleneagles with twice Michelin starred chef Andrew Fairlie. The winning up and coming chef or catering student will win a stage at Pennyhill Park working alongside Michelin starred chef Michael Wignal.
All written entries must be received by Friday 15 October 2010. For more information, visit the competition page on the Coeliac UK website.
