S.Pellegrino Young Chef

S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018 is now entering the exciting final stages of the global talent contest to find the best young chef in the world. Following a rigorous selection procedure, the best 21 young chefs from 21 global regions have already been selected and assigned a world-class mentor chef to support them on their culinary journey in the challenging competition.

From 11 to 13 May, the 21 finalists will finally come face to face, as they gather in Milan for the Grand Finale and their hard work and skills will be put to the ultimate test in a live cook-off.

It’s here, on a world platform, that they will live out their hopes and fears as the Seven Sages, a top panel of international judges, will decide which young chef will be crowned S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018 and afforded the life-changing title.

S.Pellegrino offers talented young chefs around the globe even more opportunities to develop their skills under the mentorship of a top chef as well as gaining valuable professional visibility.

Last year’s spectacular second edition saw over 3000 professional young chefs apply from around the globe, with the USA’s jubilant Mitch Lienhard scooping the prestigious title, under the mentorship of chef Dominique Crenn. “The experience has provided many unforgettable moments so far, and I am thankful for the impact the title will have in my career," he said.
