Wessex Salon Culinaire set for new home in 2012

The UK’s largest live culinary competition, the Wessex Salon Culinaire, will next year take place at Brockenhurst College on 3rd and 4th April 2012.
Located in the heart of the New Forest National Park Brockenhurst is one of the country's top colleges and has been awarded the prestigious Beacon College status for excellence and innovation in further education and ranked 'outstanding' by Ofsted. The College offers superb facilities and its students achieve excellent results.
The popular event, which is held in association with The Craft Guild of Chefs, has grown in stature over the years and is a fantastic platform for student chefs especially to get a first taste of competition experience.
Judge of the Wessex Salon Culinaire and a vice president of the Craft Guild of Chefs, Stephen Scuffell, said: “The salon events we’ll be holding include hot, cold and restaurant service classes. These classes really get to grips with a host of aspects of the industry under competition conditions. We want to encourage as many entries as possible, as it’s a fantastic arena for chefs to really put their skills to the test.”
Aside from entrants, the Wessex’s organisers are looking for sponsors to help back the competition. The viability of staging a successful salon is extremely difficult without significant sponsorship in place.
For more on taking part in the Wessex Salon Culinaire, or for sponsoring a class, or having a stand, please contact the Craft Guild of Chefs on 020 8948 3870 or email: [email protected]. A class schedule will be announced at the end of January 2012.
