Grunwerg is supporting the Roux Scholarship on its 30th anniversary by offering its brand new limited edition Global Sai knives as prizes.
Established by the Roux family 30 years ago, the Scholarship is the premier competition for young chefs in the UK and ranks among the most prestigious in the world.
Judges are Rick Stein and Angela Hartnett, who join the Roux family and other top chefs including Brian Turner and James Martin to select the 30th Roux Scholar. Also judging is Andrew Fairlie, the first scholar to win the competition, whose restaurant has been declared the best in the UK by The Times Food List.
The winner, who will be announced at a special award ceremony at The Mandarin Oriental Hotel in London on Monday March 25, will receive a career-changing opportunity: a three-month apprenticeship at any 3 Michelin star restaurant in the world.
To celebrate this special year, The Roux Scholarship 2013 is being made into an exclusive documentary series by Cactus TV to be shown on Watch and the Good Food channel later this year.
The Global Sai knives were first shown to the Roux Scholars on their trip to Japan last year. They liked them so much that they are being offered as exclusive and limited edition prizes for the competition’s regional and national finalists and the overall finalist.
The regional finalists will win 1 Global Sai knife, the national finalists will win 3 Global Sai knives and the overall finalist will win 7 Global Sai knives, a magnetic Global knife rack, a Global knife professional chefs case, whetstone and holder.
