Global chef competition launched

Italian sparkling drinks maker S.Pellegrino is now accepting contestants to its Young Chef Academy Competition. Now on its fifth edition, the contest aims to discover and nurture “brilliant professionals able to push the boundaries of gastronomy”.
The competition will offer young chefs to start an inspiring and educational journey, according to the company. They will also gain global visibility and significant professional prestige during the selection process, culminating in a grand finale event planned for Milan, Italy, in 2023.
More than 300 talented chefs and mentors from 50 countries participated in the previous 2019/21 edition. Sweden-based chef Jerome Ianmark Calayag emerged as the winner. The beverage company revealed that previous winners had used the competition as a springboard to realise their culinary ambitions. They were able to embark on various projects that are making an impact in the kitchen and beyond.
The upcoming edition will incorporate a handful of changes to the format, including an expansion of the number of regions to 16, meaning a more significant number of regional finals in the latter half of 2022. ALMA, the International School of Italian Culinary Arts, will assess initial applications, which will draw up the shortlist of competitors ahead of the regional finals.
The competition will also host three additional awards alongside the main prize. The S.Pellegrino Award for Social Responsibility, the Acqua Panna Award for Connection in Gastronomy, and the Fine Dining Lovers Food for Thought Award.
