Knorr® Professional Student Chef of the Year 2022


The 2023 competition

We’re delighted to announce that the Knorr Student Chef of the Year Competition will take place at Dundalk Institute of Technology on February 9th, marking it’s 25th year!

The theme for this year’s competition is… ‘Classic Dishes with a Modern Makeover’. Students will be asked to rethink the traditional dishes that shaped their culinary journey, giving them an innovative makeover more suited to today’s palate. They’ll also have to take into consideration food production areas, including nutrition, health, and sustainability.

Students must include at least two Knorr Professional products, one being Knorr Professional bouillon. Student chefs must include two ingredients from The Knorr® Professional Future 50 Foods Report.
