S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2016: Congratulations to the 20 Finalists!

Congratulations to the 20 young chefs who will proceed to the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2016 Grand Final.

By FDL on

Following three months of intense international challenges around the globe we can reveal the names of the 20 young chef finalists who will proceed to the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2016 Grand Final.

Over 3,000 young chefs originally entered the global talent search to find the best young chef in the world, and 200 short-listed chefs competed in 20 semi-finals, it’s now down to the final 20 with the chance of lifting the crown from last year's winner, Mark Moriarty, to become S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2016.

As the young chefs busy themselves in the kitchens in the countdown to the Grand Final, perfecting their signature dishes ready to present to the Grand Jury of seven of the world’s best chefs in October under the guidance of their chef Mentors, we take a look at the 20 young chefs and the 20 signature dishes.
