Are You the next culinary star?



Reflets par Pierre Gagnaire is offering aspiring chefs and ambitious foodies the chance of a lifetime to become Celebrity Chef Pierre Gagnaire’s Apprentice for the day, when he visits his Dubai restaurant at the end of this month.

Reflets at InterContinental Dubai Festival City is searching for a culinary star, offering one lucky person the chance of an insight into the kaleidoscopic world of Pierre Gagnaire.

The five-star fine-dining restaurant will run a competition to win this ultimate prize, entry for which is open now and ends at 5pm on Tuesday 17th January 2012. The winner will spend one day of intense training with the three Michelin star chef and the Reflets team, shadowing and learning new skills to gain a unique opportunity to embark on an exciting career.

Entrants need to film a two-minute video clip that demonstrates why they should become Chef Pierre Gagnaire’s Apprentice for the day. The clips will then be judged by an internal panel at Reflets and the winner will be notified by Sunday 22nd January 2012. Entrants are encouraged to be as creative as possible with their clips and must be aged 17+.

All entrants must ensure they can be available on any day during Chef Pierre Gagnaire’s visit, which is scheduled to last from 26th – 31st January 2012.

Olivier Biles, Head Chef at Reflets par Pierre Gagnaire, said: “This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for all aspiring chefs in Dubai. Many of Chef Pierre’s junior chefs that have demonstrated potential have grown within the company, working in several of his restaurants around the world, and this is a fantastic opportunity to get your foot in the door.

“We’re looking for serious, hard-working would-be chefs to enter this competition, people who live and breathe food and share his passion for creating wonderfully unique dishes.”

Entrants must send their video clips to before 5pm on Tuesday 17th January 2012.
