If you are aged 16-18, you can choose to be considered for an opportunity that will be offered to a student who submits an outstanding piece of work in this Challenge.  On 24th June 2021, chef Tom Kitchin is offering the chance for a young person to spend the day observing and working with the chefs in his restaurant The Kitchin in Edinburgh.  

The Kitchin opened on Edinburgh's Leith waterfront in 2006. It was awarded a Michelin star in 2007 followed by numerous prestigious awards including 'Best UK Restaurant', 'Best Restaurant in Scotland' and 'Best Restaurant Experience'.

The Kitchin presents modern British seasonal cuisine influenced by French cooking techniques and an appreciation of the best quality ingredients available from Scotland's fanstastic natural larder.  The restaurant's philosophy is 'From Nature To Plate', reflecting chef Tom Kitchin's passion for the finest, freshest Scottish seasonal produce, which is delivered to the restaurant daily by a close team of selected suppliers.
