Fine Dining Lovers
Food for Thought Award

Select the region and vote for your favourite young chef!

When applying for the S.Pellegrino Young Chef competition, each entrant was asked to answer the following question:

“What would you like to express through this dish? Please write the meaning of your dish. What message, history and identity would you like to express?”
Now we ask Fine Dining Lovers readers to evaluate the regional finalists’ responses together with the dish they presented.

In every single region, the young chef who best represents her/his personal belief within the dish, should win your vote. The chef with the most votes will claim the Fine Dining Lovers Food for Thought Award and then go on to compete for the global title at the Grand Finale in 2020.

All votes must be submitted between 7 AM GMT on the first day and 12 PM GMT on the last day of the specified voting period by region.
