Glasgow Science Centre on the hunt for Scottish Chefs of the Future

05 November 2012

Ahead of celebrity chef, James Martin, coming to Glasgow Science Centre in March 2013 to host ‘A Taste of Science Dinner’ and serenade taste buds with a specially created four course menu, Glasgow Science Centre has launched ‘Young Chefs of the Future’ cookery competition for youngsters in Primaries 4 to 7.

The visitor attraction is looking for would be chefs from across the country to plan and cook a delicious and imaginative two course menu for their favourite scientist (alive or living in the past.) The dishes don’t have to be complicated just the chef’s own creation, show originality and skill and use some great Scottish produce. The first stage can be entered from home and is a simple process of cooking and then writing up and photographing the dishes produced. The second stage will take place in February 2013 where finalists will get the chance to cook their menu working with professional chefs.

There are two categories- Primaries 4 & 5 and Primaries 6 & 7- and the winner of each category will win two tickets to the Taste of Science Dinner where they will meet James Martin, an annual family pass to Glasgow Science Centre, a medal and their own professional chef apron.

James Martin said:

“I am looking forward to coming to Glasgow Science Centre to host A Taste of Science and meet the winners of the Young Chefs of the Year winners. Scotland has great range of cookery talent with Michelin star chefs such as Martin Wishart, Gordon Ramsay, Andrew Fairlie and Tom Kitchin. The contest is a great opportunity to inspire the next generation to follow in their footsteps.”
