The Craft Guild of Chefs has announced the 14 semi-finalists in the running to win Young National Chef of the Year (YNCOTY) 2022.
They will be competing to gain a spot in the finals, which is due to take place with seven competitors at Le Cordon Bleu in London in September.

Goodwin-Allen added: “In this new role, my aim is to really inspire young chefs to look at the quality of ingredients and flavour and tell a story of who they are with their dishes. I am really looking forward to seeing what these semi-finalists submit for their chosen menus.”
Last year’s YNCOTY winner was Daniel Cornish(pictured), senior chef de partie at Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons.
