A team from Westminster Kingsway College in London has won the first Asian Junior Chefs Challenge, the competition launched by chef Cyrus Todiwala and the Master Chefs of Great Britain to boost interest in Asian cuisine among home-grown aspiring chefs. 

The team, made up of students Sam Jones, Theophil Dalton Maag and Nathan Gayle, beat teams from University College Birmingham and the University of West London to the prize of a 10 day culinary tour of India by impressing judges with their four course pan-Asian dinner and 10 minute presentation at the final on 18 October. 

All finalists attended a gala evening on the same date at the Hilton at Terminal 5 at Heathrow with almost 200 guests invited to eat a four-course dinner prepared by Todiwala and a brigade of chefs from the hotel. 

The Asian Junior Chefs Challenge was launched earlier this year to help solve the Asian restaurant sector's recruitment problems and inspire more British chefs to consider working in Indian and Chinese restaurants. It will return next year under the name Zest Quest Asia.
