Due to the developing situation with the COVID-19 outbreak, the decision has been made to cancel The UK Young Seafood Chef of the Year competition in 2020. More information on this decision will be available soon. 

The UK Young Seafood Chef of the Year is open to all full-time and college based modern apprentice chefs.

Last year’s winners were announced as Kendal College at the 2019 Young Seafood Chef of the Year final, held at the Grimsby Institute on Friday 14th June 2019.

Winners of the UK Young Seafood Chef of the Year competition will gain a mystery prize for themselves which will be announced at the final and prize certificates will be awarded to the college and team members as well as the overall winners claiming the competition trophy; competition medal; and the following grand prize package

  • £1000 Russums Voucher (for the college)
