Hundreds of teachers have entered their students into the Kent Young Chef Award over the past three years, as they find the competition a good fit with the national curriculum, with entrants challenged to devise and write an original main course dish to serve two people which features regional and seasonal ingredients. Two times champion Alice Browning, of Walderslade Girls School in Chatham, has entered the competition and reached the final for three consecutive years. She one day hopes to compete on MasterChef: The Professionals, work with Kent’s celebrity chef and restaurateur, Richard Phillips, and then run her own restaurant.

She said, “For anyone who loves cooking from scratch I would really encourage you to enter and for teachers to get behind the competition. I have always dreamed of becoming a professional chef one day and this competition is just the best accolade an aspiring young chef could hope to achieve in Kent.
“For any of you who make it to the Live Final, you’ll have an experience that you’ll never forget. I’ve made it to the finals three years in a row now and have loved it every time!”
The authors behind the eight best paper entries will head to the amazing professional kitchens and restaurant at K College, Tonbridge on Friday 23 November 2012 to compete for the Junior and Senior titles in the Live Final in front of a panel of judges headed up by celebrity chef Richard Phillips one of Kent’s top restaurateurs and including brand new judge Robert Kirby, chef director at Lexington Catering. All eight finalists will walk away with a fantastic selection of prizes, as well as a memorable one day cookery experience and lunch at one of Richard Phillips’s top restaurants in Kent – The Hengist, Thackeray’s or The Windmill Inn.
Speaking about his involvement in the competition over the past three years Richard Phillips, celebrity chef on ITV’s Lorraine, said: “For the county’s would-be future chefs the Kent Young Chef Award is an amazing first step on the ladder, with the chance for eight talented young individuals to transform their original recipe ideas from paper to plate at the exciting Live Final. It is fantastic publicity for the schools whose students make it to the final and creates a real positive energy amongst all the food tech students. Several of the finalists have been inspired to go on and pursue a career as a professional chef and Produced in Kent’s competition is a great thing to be involved in, whether you want to be the next top professional chef, or you simply love cooking!”
