A series of seven regional heats start on 27 April including one at the MKN Development Kitchen (First Choice Cannock).

The national final will be held live at the LACA Main Event at Hilton Birmingham Metropole on 6 and 7 July, before the winner is announced at the LACA Awards dinner on 7 July.

Wayne Bennett, vice-president of sales and marketing UK and Ireland for MKN, said: “Competitions of this kind are vital to drive growth and continued development in the school catering sector. We’re proud to be supporting the School Chef of the Year once again and looking forward to seeing the quality on show in the regional heats and national final. The study tour will give the winner a fantastic opportunity to see where MKN equipment is made and the innovation that goes into developing appliances for school kitchens.”
