Now in its fourth year, the competition tests the relationship between chefs and sommeliers through a series of food and wine matching tasks.

Entrants, all of whom must be aged between 18 and 35 by 1 December 2011 and already working in the hospitality industry, must complete an entry form and design a three-course menu paired with Jacquart Champagnes.

Following an initial paper judging round, eight teams will be invited to compete in a live cook off to be held at The Restaurant Show at Earls Court 2 on 10 October.

The winning team will be presented with a trip for four to Jacquart’s headquarters at the Hotel du Brimont in Reims.
