S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018: All the Local Juries and Mentors

With S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018 well underway, 210 regional semi-finalists have already been selected,  the local juries are complete and the local competitions are underway (find out the latest news here).

Each of the 21 regions competing has been allocated a local jury (one for every world region) of world class professional chefs. The team of culinary heavyweights will select the most talented young chef in the region with the capacity to represent the area on the world stage at the Grand Finale of S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018 in Milan.

A chef from each local jury has already been, or will be selected as the area mentor, and will provide the local finalist with tutelage and support up until and including the Grand Finale.

See the full list of chefs forming the local jury for each of the 21 regions below plus new of the local winners when the competition has taken place.

(Please note that in some regions the mentor will be announced following the local competition to ensure geographical proximity to the winner's country.)
