Many young chefs in our region dream of becoming a Roux scholar. To achieve the prestigious title, you need to battle off dozens of other 18 to 30 year olds and impress some of the best chefs in the world in a tense day of cooking.
The Roux Scholarship is now chaired by Michel Roux Jr. and his cousin Alain, after they took on the mantle from their fathers. Just taking part is a huge achievement for up-and-coming chefs, but to win can take their career to the next level.
This year's semi-final cook-offs took place at University College Birmingham and the University of West London. Scott Dineen lives in Folkestone and has made it to the final a few times before. He's hoping this is his lucky year.
