SousVideTools are once again proud to be sponsor of the UK’s most prestigious and respected culinary contest The National Chef of the Year. The annual competition shines a spotlight on the fresh talent coming out of the kitchen across the UK. Since it launched in 1972, previous winners like Gordon Ramsay, Alyn Williams and Mark Sargeant have seen how it helps fast-track careers to put winners firmly on the map, and on the path to Michelin stars. But this isn’t about style over substance: only the best, most innovative and creative chefs get a shot at the title – and an award that opens doors to future success.
As part of the support SousVideTools provides this prestigious culinary competition we have worked closely with organisers to enhance the experience and the journey that the finalists have from the moment they secure their place in the final.
SousVideTools recently hosted an Innovation Day at its state-of-the-art London Development Kitchen where finalists were able to experience a Masterclass with 2018 Winner Kuba Winkowski and a Q&A session with Hayden Groves 2013 winner, aswell as gaining valuable advice from our very own Chef Director Chris Holland who has competition experience from his time competing on the BBC’s Great British Menu.
