Scottish Student Chef Challenge
The competition is targeted at teams of two full-time student chefs and an additional non-cooking member (who will act as a commis/cleaner) studying hospitality or catering college courses and is an opportunity for them to develop ‘real life’ catering skills such as accurate costing and the sourcing of local ingredients as well as providing a platform to showcase their culinary skills.
