The NACC Care Chef of the Year 2019 is open to all chef and cooks working in the care sector, including care homes, day centres, lunch clubs and meals services to local authorities and other care organisations, including hospices.
Neel Radia, national chair of the NACC, said: “We’re thrilled to launch NACC Care Chef of the Year 2019. The competition has a strong reputation for showcasing the culinary excellence that the care sector exudes, so we’re very excited to see what this year’s talented entrants produce in their mission to join the exclusive club of NACC Care Chef of the Year title holders.”
Now in its twentieth year, the NACC Care Chef of the Year competition, which is sponsored by Premier Foods and the Worshipful Company of Cooks, recognises the excellence of chefs working in the care sector.
The competition is specially designed to showcase the talent, innovation, specialist skills and specific knowledge of nutrition and dietary requirements required by care chefs, whilst challenging them and encouraging them to push the boundaries. It also raises the profile of the care sector as a rewarding, dynamic career choice.
Entrants must create new exciting menus, following the competition rules that adhere to a strict budget and meet the nutritional and dietary needs of their clientele.
