NACC opens Care Chef of the Year 2022 competition

The National Association of Care Catering’s (NACC) Care Chef of the Year competition has opened for entries, officially starting the association’s annual search for the best chef working in the care sector.

Entrants are challenged to create a two-course menu (main and dessert) appropriate for people in a care setting.  The combined food cost for both courses should be no more than £3.00 per head based on three portions and it must be nutritionally balanced. The menu must also feature at least one product from award sponsor Unilever Food Solutions’ care sector range. The event sponsor is The Worshipful Company of Cooks.

The winning chef will show clear nutritional understanding of the foods they are using and how they benefit the needs of their clientele, plus culinary flair through flavours, menu balance, execution, presentation, and hygiene best practice.

The deadline for entries is Monday 25 April 2022 ahead of regional heats in June/July and a national final on Wednesday 5 October.

Further information on the NACC Care Chef of the Year 2022 competition and entry forms are available online
