Kikkoman are on the lookout for hopefuls to enter their student chef competition which will target colleges nationwide. Michelin-starred chef Simon Hulstone has launched the event that will see level two or three catering students invited to develop a starter or main course using Kikkoman soy sauce as an integral part of the dish. Simon, chef proprietor of The Elephant, said: “I am delighted to be able to launch the Kikkoman Student Chef competition today. Competitions provide a great platform for young chefs to challenge themselves and I look forward to judging the entries.” Student chefs will be competing to win a week-long work experience placement with Simon at his restaurant in Torquay, as well as catering vouchers. Bing-yu Lee, general manager of Kikkoman UK, said: “This is such a fantastic opportunity for student chefs to develop a menu to be in with a chance of winning work experience at a Michelin-starred restaurant. “We trialled the competition last year with Westminster Kingsway and the winning student, George Whitelock, actually now has a full-time job with Simon in Torquay.” For more information on how to get involved in the Kikkoman Student Chef competition, email [email protected] or call 01273 834716.
