The NACC Care Chef of the Year 2017 competition has now closed for nominations. Click back to find more information on the finalists for 2017.  This year's final will be held on 7th June at Barking & Dagenham College.

The National Association of Care Catering (NACC) has launched its 2017 search for the UKs best chef working in the care sector.

The name of the prestigious culinary competition has changed from NACC Care Cook of the Year to NACC Care Chef of the Year, in recognition of the culinary excellence and professionalism within the sector and the specialist skills and knowledge demanded of and demonstrated by chefs.

Sponsored by the Worshipful Company of Cooks and Premier Foods, the NACC Care Chef of the Year competition spotlights the care catering sector and the talented, qualified chefs operating within it.
