The chefs have chopped, steamed, boiled, diced, sliced and tasted. The final guidance from the mentors has been given and 20 young chefs, picked from every corner of the planet, will today serve their final dishes to seven of the world’s best chefs.
The S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 Grand Final is today!
The 20 young chefs have risen early this morning and entered the S.Pellegrino Young Chef kitchens in Milan, Italy. Yesterday was the hardcore prep with a whole day of cooking, today it’s time for the ultimate challenge as the chefs get ready to prep seven plates of their food for the grand jury members: Massimo Bottura, Gastón Acurio, Yannick Alléno, Margot Janse, Yoshihiro Narisawa, Joan Roca and Grant Achatz - a task that all the young chefs are relishing.
The Grand Final will culminate with a cocktail dinner party as the chefs prepare their dishes for a visiting crowd of 300 industry professionals. During the dinner the winner of the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 will be announced to the world. This year’s event will also see a special award for The Best Creative Couple, as the 20 young chefs have been teamed up with 20 designers, selected by Vogue Italia, who will each present a creation inspired by their chef’s dish.
