S.Pellegrino Young Chef

It’s back! S.Pellegrino is proud to announce the new edition of S.Pellegrino Young Chef, the most exciting global talent search for the best young chef in the world.


In this next edition of the international chef competition, S.Pellegrino will offer 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.

Chefs around the world, including chefs de cuisine, chefs de partie, sous chefs or commis, aged 30 or under, with at least one year's work experience, are invited to compete with a signature dish that will be tasted by a jury of seven world-renowned chefs who will ultimately crown the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2018.

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.

Be sure to apply online from 1 February 2017 to 30 April 2017 (check your eligibility in the new edition's competition rules) for your opportunity to take your culinary skills to the next level, work with some of the greatest chefs in the world and take away lasting memories and friends.
