The Chefs Base & Craft Guild of Chefs announce changes to Major Series 2020

Written by: Edward Waddell
The Chefs Base & Craft Guild of Chefs’ annual Major Series has announced some new changes for young chefs in the UK for 2020.

The competition aims to provide students of varying levels the chance to experience a competition to develop their skills and build their confidence in the kitchen.

A New Skills Class has been introduced for 2020 to test contestants’ plating techniques, their use of flavour and their understanding of major bases. The new class joins the list of live, static and front-of-house classes that make up the competition.

Fergus Martin, Major’s executive development chef, said: “The competition is an excellent outlet for young chefs to show their culinary talents in an arena with their peers, in a world when personal time is so very precious, it is great to see dedication to their chosen craft.”

The regional heats will take place at colleges throughout the year, with the winners advancing to the National Final in 2020 to compete for the Major Series trophy.

Wayne Harris, chairman of judges for the Craft Guild of Chefs, added:  “We’re incredibly lucky to have a team of fantastic colleges and hard working lecturers who welcome us back every year.

“It’s an invaluable experience for the students and with some exciting new opportunities coming in 2020, we can’t wait to see what they bring to the table.

“Having witnessed and tasted some fantastic entries over the years we can’t wait to see what the future will bring; so put yourself to the test and download an application form today”.
