The names of the emerging designers who will join forces with chefs at the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2015 are finally announced: the chef/designer partnerships will represent 20 world regions at the Grand Final of the global talent search launched by S.Pellegrino to find the world’s best young chef.
The finalists will gather at Expo Milano 2015 in June, where they will each pair up with a talented designer chosen by Vogue Italia, to claim the ultimate prize. Chefs will be mentored by a master chef from their own region, who will guide them through the rigorous process of honing and perfecting their signature dish. Meanwhile, each designer will come up with a fashion creation inspired by their partner’s dish, giving rise to an unprecedented fusion of fine food and style.
