Tomorrow chefs from across Brighton and Hove will be competing to see who cooks the best Chinese food in the city.
They will be taking part in the Chinese Chef of the Year competition organised by the food safety team at Brighton and Hove City Council.
The competition will be held in the training kitchens at City College in Brighton.
The judging panel will include the Mayor of Brighton and Hove Councillor Geoff Wells and food writer Andrew Kay.
The event follows a similar competition in August to find the Curry Chef of the Year, which was won by Khanchit Nimnual-Anant from the Krua Anne restaurant in Kensington Gardens.
Entrants were invited based on the council’s Score on the Doors scheme, which is used to show the food hygiene rating of every food outlet in Brighton and Hove.
Chinese restaurants with three or more stars in the Scores on the Doors ratings scheme were invited to take part in the competition.
Checks have been carried out on their food safety and hygiene measures in the run-up to the competition.
Councillor Geoffrey Theobald, the council’s cabinet member for environment, said: “The competition is designed to get across the importance of good food hygiene and healthy eating in a fun and different way.
“It is also about highlighting the choice of places we have in the city producing great food.”
Chefs competing the in the event will be from Good Friends restaurant in Preston Street, Brighton, Day’s Buffet Restaurant in East Street, Brighton, Oriental Village in Boundary Road, Hove, and the Emperor of China at Brighton Marina.
