Seafood Scotland launches chef contest

Seafood Scotland on Friday launched a contest to find the "Young Scottish Seafood Chef of the Year."

The competition is aimed at chefs under 23 and will take place on 30 June. The winner will receive a specially commissioned trophy, a week's work experience with seafood chef Roy Brett of the Dakota in North Queensferry, and the opportunity to cook the winning dishes at a Ministerial dinner.

The contest is part of a campaign designed to increase consumption of Scottish seafood, with healthy eating, sustainable supply, responsible fishing and provenance being the key messages.

Chefs will submit recipes for two appetizers and an entree from a list of Scottish seafood that includes underutilized species such as hake, megrim, razor clams and herring as well as traditional favorites like crab, scallops and langoustines.

Six finalists will be chosen by a panel from the Federation of Chefs Scotland and invited to join a trip to northeast Scotland to visit local fishermen, seafood processing facilities and Peterhead fish market.

The deadline for submissions is 5 June. Full details and entry forms can be downloaded from the SFS or Federation of Chefs Scotland Web sites.
