Online PR News – 18-June-2012 – Bristol – Bristol, United Kingdom (24 May, 2012) – 3663 Catering Equipment, the UK’s leading supplier of catering equipment, recently helped judge the 2012 Philadelphia Young Chef of the Year award.

The third annual Philadelphia Young Chef Awards was held earlier this month and open to young people in full or part time education between the ages of 17 to 23. Paul Knight, the Managing Director of 3663 Catering Equipment, had the honour of co-judging the event along with: professional chef and Philadelphia consultant, Sophie Wright; the editor of Stockpot Magazine, Sheila Eggleston; and vice chair of the Craft Guild of Chefs, Chris Basten.

The four finalists produced delicious, original dishes using the Philadelphia ingredient, but it was Bien Causapin who really impressed the judges with his delicious dish of pan-fried hake with mussels in Philadelphia sauce, chargrilled red pepper and cheesy potato croquettes. As a result, Mr Causapin was crowned the winner of the Philadelphia Young Chef Award 2012 and was awarded £500 and a year’s membership of the Craft Guild of Chefs. Each runner-up was also awarded £200, and £500 worth of catering equipment - donated by 3663 Catering Equipment - was given to The Worcestershire College of Technology, the draw winner of all the participating colleges.

Paul Knight, Managing Director of 3663 Catering Equipment, commented: “We are delighted to have co-judged the Philadelphia Young Chef of the Year Awards 2012, and believe that Bien Causapin was a worthy winner whose dish was inventive, classic and incredibly delicious. It was an honour to have judged such incredible cookery flair from participants across the UK, and we are delighted to provide the Worcestershire College of Technology with some of our high quality kitchen equipment to encourage and develop future culinary talent.”
