Entries Close on Monday 24th April for the NACC Care Chef of the Year 2023 Competition

Have you watched the Chef of the Year competition before and thought that you, or one of your team, could do as well – or even better?

Well, the hunt is on to find this year’s top chef, who will follow in the footsteps of the 2022 Champion, Chris Pickard.

With only a couple days left to enter, we encourage participation in this competition as it is a very effective means of raising the profile of care catering, and puts presentation and creativity skills to the test. It is a very useful tool in the workplace with regard to staff development.

The competition is not only open to those working in care homes but also extends to local authorities and other care organisations including hospices.


We are looking for a two course menu, main course and dessert, suitable for service users in a care setting. The combined food cost for both courses should be no more than £3.50 per head based on three portions and the meal should be nutritionally balanced and incorporate one of the Unilever Food Solution’s products as listed in the competition rules 9.


Non-member entrants must be nominated by a member holding current membership of the NACC including group memberships. Alternatively, non-members are welcome to enter for a fee of £70+VAT, this will include a 12 month membership to the NACC. The entry fee is non-refundable.
Your nomination will not be accepted if this fee is not paid ahead of the paper judging.
