Peppadew International is proud to announce the launch of the 2018 Young Chefs Culinary Challenge

Peppadew International (Pty) Ltd is proud to announce the launch of the 2018 Young Chefs Culinary Challenge: a competition providing young chefs in South Africa an opportunity to showcase their creative culinary skills and broaden their food horizons!

Peppadew® is a brand that provides a range of food products that are distinctive in taste, versatile in their usage, and deliver endless opportunities to transform menus to be outstanding. Given these well-known features of the brand, Peppadew® is asking young chefs to think out the box, and put forward their best 3 course menu featuring Peppadew® as a basis for being selected to partake in the final cook-off.

In order to get our young chefs inspired, two workshops will be held before the entries are due, where the versatility of the Peppadew® products will be demonstrated. The Top 6 finalists will be selected based on their menus submitted, and from there the final cook-off will take place.

This year’s grand prize is an all-expenses paid trip to the Worldchefs Congress in Kuala Lumpur in July 2018 to attend the Billy Gallagher Young Chefs Forum: a fantastic opportunity to interact with Chefs from around the world and gain international culinary exposure!

Peppadew® is a proud supporter of the food service and hospitality industry in South Africa, and feel that young chefs in South Africa deserve every opportunity to enhance their culinary skills, and showcase their talent. This competition will do exactly that, as it aims to promote cookery amongst aspiring young chefs while providing inspiration for creative culinary thinking.

If you are currently a young apprentice chef, under the age of 25 and are passionate about growing your career in food or know of someone who suits these requirements, the Peppadew® 2018 Young Chefs Culinary Challenge is the perfect platform to demonstrate your full range of culinary skills. To find out more about the competition, including access to the Terms and Conditions and Entry Form, please visit the Peppadew® website at or Facebook page at
