Time is running out to enter the 2011 Roux Scholarship, the winner of which will receive a three-month stage at a three-Michelin-starred restaurant anywhere in the world. The deadline for entries has been extended to Friday, 4 February.
Entrants, who must work in the UK and be between 22 and 30, have to submit a monkfish recipe for four people, accompanied by a rice dish and a green vegetable.
The semi-finals are due to be held on 10 March in Birmingham and London, with the final taking place at London’s Westminster Kingsway College on 18 April.
Joining Michel Roux on the judging panel will be his son Alain, brother Albert and nephew Michel Jnr, as well as the first Roux Scholar Andrew Fairlie and judges Brian Turner, Gary Rhodes, David Nicholls and James Martin.
Previous winners include Simon Hulstone, Sat Bains, Andre Garrett and Hrishikesh Desai, who went to Thomas Keller’s French Laundry for his winning stage and was the first Roux Scholar to venture outside of Europe.
