Pellegrino Young ChefS. Pellegrino has extended the deadline for its Young Chef 2015 competition. Entries were supposed to close 15th December, but chefs now have until 31st December at 23:59 (GMT+1) to fill in their applications. The change comes after a number of requests from busy chefs who are hard at work during the Christmas period. They have also released a breakdown of how the search will work, which is as follows: 10 December - 31 December 2014 Chefs are asked to fill in some simple online forms and provide some basic details, uploading their CV, a recipe for their signature dish and photos of their dish. 31 December 2014 – 15 January 2015 ALMA (the world's leading international educational and training centre for Italian Cuisine) will select a maximum of 10 semi-finalists for each of the 20 world areas. 16 January – 28 February 2015 The semi-finalist chefs of each area will have to cook their signature dish for a Local Jury who will select one finalist from their area. 1 – 31 March 2015 Vogue Italia chooses one young fashion designer from each of the finalist 20 areas. At this point 20 couples chef/designer will be formed. 1 April – 15 June 2015 The finalist chef and designer from each country will work together to interpret the chef’s signature dish with his/her own original creation. Both the signature dish and fashion creation will be presented at the final event in Milan. 25 - 27 June 2015Expo-1 All finalists will be at Expo Milano 2015 in Milan for the Grand Final. During the event, the finalist chefs prepare their signature dish to be judged by an International top chef Jury. The Jury will award just one as the S. Pellegrino Young Chef 2015. The 20 chef/designer couples' work will be judged by the Grand Final Event guests (journalists, PR agencies, etc.) and one duo will be awarded as Best Couple Chef/Designer 2015.
