Metro Sanpellegrino Young Chef Scholarship 2022

Once again we are looking for Auckland's best young chefs.

Metro Sanpellegrino Young Chef Scholarship 2022

Jun 27, 2022 Restaurants

If you’re familiar with our Top 50 cycles, you may know we’re gearing up for Restaurant of the Year again – and that means we’re opening up for entries to our Young Chef scholarship, an initiative we started last year. A lack of physical awards ceremony meant we couldn’t celebrate this to the extent we’d have liked to, but barring something totally awful and unexpected happening, it will be happening this year. It will!

If you, or someone you know, would be interested in entering, you can find out more details and fill out the entry form here. We’ll give out the prize on awards night – which means the winner will get to go – plus a published recipe in the next issue, and $3000 NZD.

Entries close July 31st.

Metro N°440 is out now!

With progressive councillors starting to score some wins under what was anticipated to be a reactionary major, Hayden Donnell asks: Has Wayne Brown gone woke?
Plus: we go out and investigate Auckland’s nightlife (or in some cases, the lack thereof), with best bars (with thanks to Campari); going-out diaries from Chlöe Swarbrick, BBYFACEKILLA.mp3, Poppa.Jax & more; a look into Auckland’s drugs by Don Roew (who’s holding and how much they paid for it); we go on the campaign trail with Willie Jackson, talk to gallerist Michael Lett, drink martinis and alternative wines, start seeing a therapist, visit Imogen Taylor’s studio, look into Takutai Tarsh Kemp’s wardrobe. And more!
