Toque d’Or 2022 entries open

Nestlé Professional has opened registrations for Toque d’Or 2022 to all level two and three students and apprentices. However, with only a few months to go, college lecturers, employers and apprentices are urged to register before the 4th February 2022 deadline.

All entrants will develop practical activity skills at their college or workplace during the first phase. As the competition progresses, they’ll learn valuable industry-led skills through a blend of face-to-face and virtual challenges.

Following the grand finals, two front of house and two back of house winners will be announced at the awards ceremony and invited on the Toque d’Or 2022 winners’ trip. This will include a gastronomic weekend in Dubai and attending the Worldchefs Congress and Expo 2022 in Abu Dhabi.

A Sustainable Futures theme will be reflected across each challenge, covering elements such as nutrition, health, food waste and seasonality. And as part of its well-respected panel of judges, it will welcome back Masterchef The Professionals: A Festive Knockout winner Louisa Ellis, alongside well-respected sommelier and wine expert Raul Diaz.

Katya Simmons, managing director of Nestlé Professional UK&I, said: “Everyone loved the format of last year’s competition. Despite the pandemic, we retained the competition’s trademark excitement and community through a mix of virtual and face-to-face learning and challenges.

“As a result, we’re using many of the same techniques this year. Even better, we can encourage more entrants to get involved and take advantage of the training on offer.”
