Young Chefs Competition - 2008

The grand finals of the Young Chefs Competition in Great Britain took place on Wednesday 11 June in Le Cordon Bleu School in London, and we are delighted to announce Robert Taylor as its winner.

The competition is open to any young person in the restaurant trade working in a Chaîne des Rôtisseurs establishment.

Some really good candidates, a tough competition and a great win for Robert. Having been placed third in last year’s national final, it is a great testament to his love of food and cooking and hard work and dedication that he has succeeded this year.

The results are:

  • First place - Robert Taylor (Swinton Park, Ripon, Yorkshire Bailliage)
  • Second place - Peter Clarke (Imperial Hotel, Yarmouth, Anglia Bailliage)
  • Third place - Jonathan Millar (Cringletie House, Peebles, Scotland Bailliage)

Robert will go on to represent Great Britain at the International Final in Paris on 19 September 2008.
