Competition could inspire young chefs

Young chefs could compete in a celebrity judged culinary competition

One way in which chefs could be inspired by some new creative cuisine is to expose themselves to new dishes by competing with fellow professionals.

Young chefs have the opportunity to do just that as entries are being accepted for the 2012 Roux Scholarship Competition.

Participants have to be between the ages of 22 and 30 in order to enter, for which they must submit a recipe using spring chicken and garnishes by midnight on January 30th.

Chef Steve - McCormick's resident expert - says judging at culinary competitions is one of his inspirations and participants will also have the opportunity to take influence from the work of fellow professionals.

Among the celebrity judges are James Martin of BBC One television show Saturday Kitchen and Gary Rhodes, in addition to Michel and Albert Roux, as well as their sons Alain and Michel Junior.

"Spring chicken can either be a very simple or very complex dish, giving the entrants plenty of scope to show us their skill and knowledge," explained Alain Roux.
