Meet the semi-finalists

After a hugely successful first round, our Chef of the Year semi-finalists have been announced.

The first round of this year’s Chef of the Year competition was a resounding success. It attracted many of our hugely talented Destination chefs from as far afield as Loch Lomond and the Isle of Wight. The judges all commented on how high the standard was and were taken back by the skill and passion of our chefs.
