Alex Connell, principal tutor at Cordon Vert, said: “We would like to challenge all chefs to take part in Chef of the Future 2014, Cordon Vert’s annual vegetarian cookery contest to find the best chef in the UK. We are in our sixth year of the competition and have continued to see some unbelievable food being created by our finalists each time. We are looking forward to this year’s contest especially as the final will take place during National Vegetarian Week 2014. Dishes should be presented to the highest standards, and should be able to hold their own for vegetarian and meat-eating audiences alike.”

The judging panel consists of Alex Connell, Cordon Vert Principal Tutor, last year’s champion Gary Ashley and industry figures yet to be announced. The Cordon Vert School has an unrivalled reputation for excellent and innovative vegetarian cuisine, drawing on a variety of international flavours and ingredients reflecting current trends in world cuisine with fresh and imaginative ideas.
