Indian restaurant Cinnamon Kitchen has launched a competition to find an apprentice to work in its kitchen alongside executive chef Vivek Singh.
The TalkTalk Kitchen Apprentice 2010 competition gives professional and amateur cooks the chance to win a three-month apprenticeship with Singh at his city restaurant as well as a two-night stay for two in the penthouse suite at the Park Plaza County Hall.
Entrants are being asked to submit a recipe for a British dish with an Indian twist that can be prepared and cooked in 10 minutes.
Five finalists will then be selected to make their dish in front of a panel of judges, including Singh, Restaurant magazine editor Paul Wootton and food critic Jasper Gerard, on 29 April.
Flavour, originality, complexity and presentation will all be taken into consideration, before the overall winner is announced and offered the exclusive three-month apprenticeship over a complimentary finalist lunch.
The winner’s dish will also be placed on Cinnamon Kitchen’s a la carte menu for a month and the restaurant has pledged to donate £1 to industry charity Hospitality Action for every dish ordered.
