Student, trainee and professional chefs aged 18 to 23 have until midday on Friday April 28 to submit their recipe for a brand new on-the-go patisserie item, and stake their claim to have it created for sale at Taste of London in June.
Chefs at Play is bakery suppliers Coup de pates’ nationwide search for the freshest young talent and there’s still time to get involved. Young chefs should visit http://www.aryztafoodsolutions.co.uk/chefs-at-play/ and submit a paper recipe idea for a new creation that twins two of the foodservice world’s biggest current trends – patisserie and food on-the go.
Chefs have one of eight base products – sourced from Coup de pates’ semi-prepared range – from which to build their recipe. From there, it is up to them to use their flair, creativity and any supplementary garnishes or ingredients to craft a patisserie item that can be enjoyed ‘on-the-go’.
Following the close of phase one, four finalists will be selected by a panel of judges, including returning Chef Ambassador for Coup de pates’ parent company, ARYZTA Food Solutions, James Tanner, to bring their paper entries to life in a cook-off at Coup de pates headquarters in London’s Covent Garden during May.
The prize also includes the chance to demo on the ARYZTA Food Solutions stand at Taste of London and work alongside the company’s chefs and will include dinner for two and an overnight stay in the capital.
