North East of Scotland Chef and Restaurant of the Year Competitions

After a pandemic-enforced pause in 2020, the North East of Scotland Chef and Restaurant of the Year Awards have re-launched with a new category line up for 2022.

Working chefs and food business owners are being invited to enter and take the opportunity to showcase their talent and culinary skills. Entries close on 12th September at 5pm, with the final being held at the North East Scotland College on Monday the 17th October followed by the awards ceremony, set to take place at Elphinstone Hall, University of Aberdeen on the evening of Monday the 17th October. 

Two new categories have been added to the competition; the Casual Dining Award, and Game Chef of the Year - a special class linked to Scotland's outstanding autumnal produce. 

Categories are; North East of Scotland chef of the Year, Young Chef of the Year, Game Chef of the Year, Restaurant of the Year and Best Casual Dining Award. 

A cash prize of £1,500 augments the professional cache of being the winner of North East Scotland Chef of the Year, while there are other attractive cash prizes for all chef category overall winners, as-well-as trophy plates for Runners-Up and Restaurant and Casual Dining Categories. 

General Manager, Karen Black, commented: 2The Hospitality Industry does so much to promote and sustain the use of locally sourced produce and the development of skills and new talent within the culinary arts that we felt it was important to relaunch the competition. We want to celebrate the resilience of our local chefs and business owners after a tumultuous two years of having to navigate COVID and it's impact on our industry."

"With this in mind, we've organised a streamlined event this year, hence the unusually short amount of time to submit entries. Encouragingly, we've already had a lot of interest from past entrants who are already working hard on their fabulous menus and dishes in preparation for the competition."
