The jurors will be judging the finalists based on three key attributes - technical skills, creativity and personal belief - as well as the candidates' potential to create positive change in society through food. The chef who displays these attributes most successfully will be crowned S.Pellegrino Young Chef 2020.
This year's culinary journey will also host a one-day Forum curated by Fine Dining Lovers - the online leading voice in gastronomy by S.Pellegrino and Acqua Panna for worldwide food enthusiasts - that will be dedicated to human and food sustainability in Gastronomy. Young and top chefs will take turns on stage to share their view and experience about kitchen culture and sustainable practices: to name one for all, the world-renowned chef Massimo Bottura will run a special lecture.
