The Stock People are calling on kitchens to represent eight regions across the UK – London, the South East, the South West, the Midlands, the North East, the North West & Northern Ireland, Wales, and Scotland – with the prize of £1,000 cash plus a bespoke menu development masterclass, up for grabs.
Seven runners-up will also receive £300 towards a team night on the tiles.
Kitchens across the hospitality sector are invited to enter at www.bestbrigades.co.uk before 22 April 2016 and demonstrate that theirs is the team with the best cooking, the biggest characters and the greatest camaraderie.
All entries will be judged by a highly respected panel of chefs, with eight regional representatives being chosen to bring their paper entries to life in the form of a 60-second video.
The final eight videos will then be put to a public vote to decide which should be crowned as Britain’s best.
Essential Cuisine managing director Nigel Crane said: “Teamwork is the element that elevates good chef teams to best brigades. Supreme skill and fantastic food are incredibly important factors in the success of an outlet, but in the heat of service, when the pressure is on, it is a solid team ethic that will carry you through to deliver brilliant dishes on time, every time.
"Last year we saw something very special and were able to crown a highly talented bunch of chefs. If you think your brigade has what it takes to top 2015’s crop, then I urge you to get in touch today.”
