Heat 2020 opens for entry

Written by: Edward Waddell
The Craft Guild of Chefs has announced that entries are now open for the 2020 Heat Culinary Colleges Competition set to take place in Jersey, March 2020.

Heat 2020 is open to full-time hospitality students across the UK. This is a unique opportunity for students to be involved in one of the best culinary competitions.

It is a competition that equally judges both the kitchen and front of house. Qualifying heats are held throughout the UK with the main event-taking place annually in March in Jersey. 

In previous years, chefs from Michelin starred restaurants leading the college teams have included Mark Jordan, Frances Atkins and Lee Smith.

Stephen Scuffell, chair of vice-presidents of the Craft Guild of Chefs, said: “It really stretches both the students and the lecturers and makes them think not only about the competition work but also the commercial aspect of running a restaurant.

“The trip to the final at Highlands College and the whole Jersey experience has changed many of these students lives going forward and motivated them beyond belief.

“Heat is one of very few cook and serve competitions and I don’t know any that engage teams of ten that include lecturers and high profile chefs from industry working along side the students all competing as one team.”
