Balmoral Hotel Master*Chef #WeAreFeile30 

Danny Millar presents Professional Master*Chef competition in association with Hospitality Ulster.

There is a crisis in the hospitality industry and it is estimated that that there is a shortage of 2000 chefs currently in the North.
While others highlight the crisis in the profession we are doing something about it by showcasing the existing local talent and wonderful local produce and thus encouraging young people to choose being a chef as a career path.

We aim to unearth some of those professional chefs currently working locally who can be assisted by taking part in this fantastic event and who can go on to being the next star in the industry. 

Being judged by your peers is serious business and whoever is successful will be worthy of the title. So it's a serious competition for serious chefs and we are delighted to partner with Feile to host this event.

We are very grateful that top chef Danny Millar has agreed to lead the team of judges this really places the gravity of the prize as something that will make people sit up and pay attention.

There is also a charitable aspect to the night itself with money raised during the peoples’ choice award being donated.
We would encourage people to come along and be our guests at what will be a superb evenings feast of food and entertainment.

Be our guest in the grand ballroom on the 9th of August for the spectacular live finale of Master*Chef.
