2018 Winners and Finalists
The 15th annual South West Chef of the Year competition culminated in some nail-biting and incredibly close finals, presenting our judges with some of their toughest challenges yet! Our prestigious panel of judges deliberated for a very long time at the finals of the professional and student chef categories, being forced to drill down to the finest details to select their winners. Finals in the home cook and junior categories proved, once again, that the level of skill among amateur cooks also never fails to impress!
We are very excited to have been able to highlight the exceptionally talented chefs, home cooks and junior cooks of the region, not to mention the bounty of diverse ingredients on our doorstep, over the last 15 years and 2018 was certainly no exception!
Thank you very much to everyone who entered and took part for all the time and hard work they committed to ensuring we enjoyed another competition of such an exceptional standard and many congratulations to all our finalists and winners.
