Game-to-Eat launches new Game-to-Eat Student Chef of the Year competitionÂ
Students from UK catering colleges are being invited to enter a new competition to become the Game-to-Eat Student Chef of the Year 2013.
Colleges including Stratford on Avon, Sheffield, Bristol, Kent, South Essex, Shrewsbury, Durham, Petroc, Thanet, Bournemouth, and Derby are being visited by Game-to-Eatâ€™s Consultant Chef Lee Maycock who will be giving an in-depth briefing on â€˜fur and featherâ€™ as well as a cookery demonstration on delicious game dishes.
Year 2 and 3 catering students can participate in the competition, which requires original recipes using partridge or pheasant and colour photograph to be submitted.Â Ten finalists will then be invited to a cook-off in London where Lee and an expert panel of judges will choose a winner and two runners up.
The prize fund includes Â£500 of equipment vouchers along with a weekâ€™s work experience at a top restaurant.
Alexia Robinson of Game-to-Eat says: â€œThe Game-to-Eat campaign was set up to encourage more people to eat game, either at home or when in a restaurant.Â We feel this competition will give chefs of the future a good introduction to cooking game and the flavours that work well together.Â Â As a wild, free-range seasonal meat it is a must-have for all restaurant menus.â€
The Game-to-Eat campaign has been running for over 10 years and has launched Game-to-Eat Month: Go Wild with British Game, running 1st-30th November 2012, pubs, restaurants and butchers are being invited to use the month to promote game to a wider audience.
