Chefs At Play

Premium foodservice supplier, Coup de pates, is launching Chefs at Play, a nationwide competition offering young chefs between the ages of 16 - 25 the chance to win an all-expenses-paid trip to its exclusive Paris development kitchens and have a hand in creating a brand new product for the UK foodservice market.

What's more, you'll be jetting off with highly respected chef and Coup de pates' Chef Ambassador, James Tanner.

Get inspired and watch award-winning young pastry chef, Thomas Leatherbarrow, test his creative skills as he uses Coup de pates' semi-prepared range to bring together innovative new signature recipes.

Once you've watched the video, go to, choose one base product and add the ingredients of your choice to create an innovative new canape or reception product. If you're a working or aspiring chef between 16 and 25, and feel you have what it takes to compete, get involved today.
