2016 Regional Jeunes Chefs Rôtisseurs
The Chaine des Rotisseurs’ 2016 Southeast Regional Young Chefs Competition will be held at Keiser University in Melbourne on Saturday, February 27, 2016. This competition needs contestants who are eligible to compete both nationally and internationally. Each competitor is given an identical mystery “market basket” containing a few key ingredients, and is to design and prepare a 3-course meal to serve four people using those ingredients—all in four hours!
The first competition was organized in 1977 in Switzerland to support and promote future young chefs by giving them the opportunity to demonstrate their skills. Competitions are held at regional, national and international levels in countries around the world that have a strong Chaîne presence. The competition was started in 1990 in the United States and continues to grow every year. It has been featured on the TV Food Network and CNN.
