Leading this year's team was, Adam Bennett, the Michelin starred chef of The Cross at Kenilworth, who has been Team UK's candidate for the past 2 competitions (placing 4th and 10th), alongside Commis Chef, Josh Allen from the University College Birmingham. They were coached by previous candidate and award winning chef Idris Caldora and the President of the team is Brian Turner, a household name in the culinary world! After a heated competition they placed an admirable 10th this year out of 24 competing countries.
Team UK has secured a place in the final 15 times and is progressing continuously. Adam Bennett is now stepping down to leave this unique opportunity to another chef. Team UK are now searching for the candidate to take them to the competition in 2017!
