A Michelin-starred chef is inviting teenagers to cook at his Yorkshire pub in a search for the county’s best young chef.

James Mackenzie, chef proprietor of the Pipe and Glass Inn, South Dalton, has teamed up with the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School and farming company JSR to invite budding chefs to compete for the Golden Apron 2014 award.

Three finalists will cook alongside Mackenzie with top prize being a work placement with Cranswick working on the Sainsbury’s account with the new product development team.

Sixteen entrants will be chosen to participate in two heats at the Yorkshire Wolds Cookery School and asked to cook a pork dish in front of judges. Eight contestants will be chosen for the semi-final and from those, three will go on to the final.

"This is a great opportunity for youngsters across Yorkshire to work with some great local produce and show what can be achieved," said Mackenzie.

The competition is sponsored by food suppliers Cranswick and supermarket giants Sainsbury’s and is open to chefs aged 14 to 19-years-old living in Yorkshire. Enter at www.goldenapron.co.uk​ by 31 January.
