Ricki was selected from a paper application and recipe sent to the judges anonymously, he will now compete in a regional final on March 14th. From the 18 chefs shortlisted only six chefs go through from the regionals to a final held on the 1stApril.
It is a huge accolade for chef’s to be selected for the regional finals; our very best wishes go with Ricki as he competes to win a place in the finals.
In 1984, Michel Roux OBE founded the Roux Scholarship with his brother Albert to enable a new generation of chefs from Britain to train in the greatest restaurants in the world. Not only has it become the industry’s most acclaimed chef competition in the UK with many scholars having gone on to win Michelin stars themselves, it ranks among the most prestigious competitions for chefs in the world. Since it was established more than three decades ago, it has helped British chefs gain the international recognition they deserve. With many young chefs entering the competition each year, it is true to say thousands have been inspired, and lives changed, by the experience of competing.
