S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2020 Grand Finale postponed
S.Pellegrino announces that the Grand Finale of S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2020 in Milan, scheduled for 8-9 May 2020, has been postponed to 7-8 May 2021.
In light of the current Covid-19 pandemic, S.Pellegrino has been concentrating its efforts on safeguarding the health of its employees and stakeholders, and focusing its resources on supporting the global gastronomy community, from renowned chefs to the freshest emerging talents.
The decision to postpone the Grand Finale by a year allows S.Pellegrino to continue along this path, while ensuring that the event will benefit from the same high levels of preparation, participation and attention as it always has in the past.
The S.Pellegrino Young Chef competition is one of the most important events in the S.Pellegrino calendar. The Grand Finale, undoubtedly the highlight of the competition, is a great opportunity to bring together the very best young talents and some of the world's finest chefs, along with media, influencers and partners from all over the world.
This year's finalists will now have a full year in which to grow in maturity, hone their skills and develop their ideas, before meeting in Milan in May 2021. This time the wait is longer, but the Grand Finale promises to be even better!
In the meantime, the world of gastronomy will certainly not stand still, and neither will S.Pellegrino. The S.Pellegrino Young Chef finalists around the world can look forward to many new S.Pellegrino Young Chef initiatives to be announced over the coming months.
S.Pellegrino looks forward to seeing all the young chefs, as well as the mentors, Jurors and supporters who were due to join us in Milan in May 2020. In the meanwhile, we are committed to stand alongside you, nurturing the future of gastronomy together.
