Participating in the International Salon Culinaire offers chefs of all ages and levels of ability the chance to be recognised for their talent. Previous participants in The International Salon Culinaire competitions have gone  on to rank amongst the UK’s most celebrated and awarded chefs, both in the UK and internationally. A coveted medal at Salon Culinaire is one to be treasured for a lifetime. All the competitors are scored against the International Salon Culinaire Standard – medals across all sections of the Salon are awarded according to points given. There will be a ‘Best in Class’ award where the winner will receive a Commemorative Plate in addition to their medal/ medals for the standard achieved.

Plus we have 4 Chairman of Judges awards where the Chairman will recognise an individual’s achievements within their respective sections.

And finally, thank you to our 2024 sponsors for providing some amazing rewards to our competition winners. Below is a highlight of just some of the prizes that were won this year.
