Baxter explains: "Throughout the world, Aberdeen-Angus beef is
recognised and revered as a quality product, known for its
tenderness and depth of flavour. This competition will allow
entrants to showcase the quality of the beef whilst demonstrating
their flair, imagination and ingenuity".
The top ten entrants will be invited to a
Cook Off at Braehead Foods on Tuesday 16th May, where
they will be required to cook and serve their designed dish
alongside creating two Aberdeen-Angus beef-based canapes from a box
of mystery ingredients.

to have their canapes served at the World Angus Forum's Gala Dinner
at the National Museum of Scotland on Monday 26th
The two runners up will each win a week's
placement in a Michelin starred restaurant in Scotland. "These are
experiences which could be career shaping for the successful

the world in action in their own kitchens and to be involved in
cooking food to the highest level," explains Baxter.
