The Final will take place on Monday 25th March 2013 at Westminster Kingsway College in the heart of London.
In a special briefing by the judges, 30 minutes before the start of the competition, the six regional finalists will be given the recipe and ingredients for a main dish, either classic or modern and asked to prepare and present it.
Rules for preparation will be similar to the Regional finals.
Throughout the preparation, one or more judges will be present to award marks for culinary ability. They will also be looking for entrants to demonstrate clearly some of the more traditional culinary skills, e.g. turning a mushroom. The chef must prepare everything personally. The finished dish will be marked on presentation and taste.
In the event of a tie, candidates will be judged on their approach to five specific kitchen problems.
The winner will be announced at the awards ceremony which will take place at the Mandarin Oriental Hyde Park that same evening
