The S.Pellegrino Young Chef competition is back to look for the best young culinary talent worldwide. Last year, the first edition of the prestigious contest drew more than 3,600 applicants and saw the triumph of Mark Moriarty from Ireland.

This year 20 young chefs from many different geographic areas will compete for the coveted title of S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2016, which will be based on the judgement of the Seven Sages of world cuisine.

The jury of top international chefs will be composed of: Carlo Cracco, Mauro Colagreco, David Higgs, Gaggan Anand, Elena Arzak, Wylie Dufresne and Roberta Sudbrack. They will taste the dishes of the challengers and decide who deserves to become the best young chef in 2016.

If you are a chef, a sous chef or chef de partie between the ages of 18 and 30 start practicing on your best recipe: Registration will open on Jan. 1, 2016. In the video you'll find all the information on the different stages of the S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2016 challenge.
