The Senior and Junior champions from the UK heats will go on to compete in the European semi-final held in Milan on 3rd October 2015.
Commenting ahead of the UK heats, Sundial Group’s Executive Chef, Jerry Toth, said: “It’s very exciting to have so many of our talented chefs in this prestigious competition. Our Head Chef at Woodside, Iain Miller, is currently the UK senior champion and Mitchell Leech is the current junior champion so it would be great if Sundial Group can continue to fly the UK flag for another year running.”
