Following a highly successful first year, which saw eight chef teams from across the UK become YouTube stars, Essential Cuisine launches its search for Britain’s Best Brigade 2016. Britain's Best Brigade 2016The Stock People are calling on kitchens to represent eight regions across the UK – London, the South East, the South West, the Midlands, the North East, the North West & Northern Ireland, Wales, and Scotland – with the prize of £1000 cash plus a bespoke menu development masterclass, up for grabs. Seven runners up will also receive £300 towards a team night out. Kitchens throughout the hospitality industry, from hospitals and schools, to contract caterers, pubs and hotels are all invited to enter before 22 April, 2016 at www.bestbrigades.co.uk before to demonstrate that theirs is the team with the best cooking, the biggest characters and the greatest camaraderie. Nigel Crane, Managing Director for Essential Cuisine, said: "Teamwork is the element that elevates good chef teams to best brigades. "Last year we saw something very special and were able to crown a highly talented bunch of chefs. If you think your brigade has what it takes to top 2015’s crop, then I urge you to get in touch today.” Britain's Best Brigade 1All entries will be judged by a highly respected panel of chefs, with eight regional representatives being chosen to bring their paper entries to life in the form of a 60-second video. The final eight videos will then be put to a public vote to decide which should be crowned as Britain’s best.
