About World Young Chef Young Waiter — Wales
Croeso i Gymru — welcome to Wales!
A country shaped on three-sides by pristine ocean, where mountains, moorlands, rivers and pastures are peppered with livestock and bursting with life, it’s hardly surprising that Wales is home to world-class produce, as well as people who can cook and serve it expertly.
We know this, but it’s time the rest of the world knew it too.
That’s why this year, University of Wales Trinity Saint David is bringing the World Young Chef Young Waiter competition to Wales for the first time, to host the best-of-the-best that this green land has to offer.
Established in 1979, the World Young Chef Young Waiter competition aims to promote careers in hospitality, and is open to all professional chefs and waiters under the age of 26 who live and work in Wales.
Entrants will encounter some of Wales’ leading hospitality figures on our expert judging panel, build key skills and make links with other competitors in a fun, challenging and rewarding environment.
The 2022 Wales finals will take place on 31st October and 1st of November at the Brangwyn Hall in Swansea, and winners of this competition will compete in the world finals in Monaco on 15th-16th November.
The University of Wales Trinity Saint David’s long history of Higher Education in Wales includes a well-established school of Hospitality and Tourism, bringing enhanced opportunities to the people of Wales.
Forging strong links with businesses and industry partners to build networks that elevate students and communities, the University is delighted to host the World Young Chef Young Waiter competition and expand this network to incorporate the wider Welsh Hospitality sector.
Enter today to be part of this exciting development in Wales’ burgeoning food scene.
