Knowledge story, The Knowledge

The heat in Dubai’s kitchens just got turned up as we search for the cream of the city’s cooking crop. Once again Time Out is offering the city’s kitchen staff the chance to claim the crown of Best Young Chef in Dubai.

The 2014 Time Out Young Chef of the Year show, will take place at The Park Hyatt Dubai on Tuesday December 16, 2014. On this date, four professional chefs from across Dubai, all 30 years old or younger, will each cook a four-course festive meal for an expert panel of judges and 200 Time Out readers. Each dish will be scored against set criteria before the winner is announced on the night.

The expert judges will include chief judge Uwe Micheel, president of the Emirates Culinary Guild and director of kitchens at Radisson Hotel Dubai Deira Creek; Michael Clinton, executive chef at Park Hyatt Dubai; Russell Impiazzi, culinary director at Galeries Lafayette Gourmet; Silvena Rowe, Celebrity Chef and Founder of Omnia and Mark Dinning editor of Time Out Dubai magazine. The event will be hosted by Tom Urquhart.

Invitation letters will be sent to the city’s hotels and restaurants to invite applications throughout November. These applications will be reviewed by the expert panel to determine the final four chefs, who will be announced in late November. The deadline for the initial applications will close on November 10. To request an application form please email reema.rahman@itp.com.

Tickets for the event are on sale now through timeouttickets.com and are priced at Dhs395 and includes a four-course festive menu cooked by one of the final four chefs, plus unlimited house beverages courtesy of African + Eastern.
