Coeliac UK, the national charity for people with coeliac disease, is encouraging chefs from across the UK to enter its Gluten-free Chef of the Year competition.

The competition is being run in association with the Institute of Hospitality and the Craft Guild of Chefs with the judging to be once again headed up by celebrity chef and Coeliac UK’s food ambassador Phil Vickery.

Professional cooks and catering college students are required to design a three-course gluten-free meal for two people. This year, entrants’ menus must include at least two courses which include a gluten-free element, such as pasta, pastry, and bread.

The ingredients must be made from scratch on the day of the live cook off by three finalists in each group. The live cook off will take place at the Unilever Food Solutions Culinary Business Development Centre in Leatherhead on 12 November 2012.
