Enter the 2018 Diamond Standards cookery competition!
Teflon has announced the launch of its 2018 Diamond Standard Awards for amateur chefs of all ages; the Diamond Standard Awards competition was launched in 2012 and is a respected initiative amongst industry leaders that recognises excellence, supports students in achieving their goals of working in the industry, and recognises non-professional home cooks.
There are three categories of entry: Keen Young Cooks (aged 12-16 years) to bake a favourite dish; Aspiring Student Chefs (aged 16-19 years) to cook a game-inspired signature dish; and Keen Home Cooks (aged 17 years and over) to cook their signature classic.
The winning student and young cook will receive a prestigious three-year Specialised Chefs Scholarship, while the home cook wins a bespoke cookery weekend. In addition to these prizes, bundles of Teflon non-stick coated cookware from the sponsors are awarded, as well as cash prizes of up to £500.
A team of esteemed judges chaired by Lesley Waters will choose their winners at the Waitrose Cookery School in London, at a national cook-off in January 2018.
Entries are open from 6 March and can be submitted individually or via schools and colleges. For more information and to enter this fabulous competition, visit www.teflondsa.co.uk
