British Turkey stages student chef competition

British Turkey has launched its fourth student chef competition to Level 2 and 3 catering students.

The students will be invited to participate in the competition, in which they will use British turkey thighs or breast meat.

The winning entry will receive £400 of catering vouchers and could have its recipe served at the annual industry awards banquet held in September next year. The winner will also be given the chance to work at the awards venue, preparing the dishes.

Paul Kelly, chairman of the British Turkey Federation said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for student chefs to develop a menu that could be served to the industry movers and shakers at the annual awards dinner in September 2014.

“Turkey is a versatile protein that can be served all year round and is a fantastic flavour carrier. We are extremely excited to be continuing our student chef activity and look forward to seeing some delicious dishes being entered”.
