Concept

The soul of the chef at the heart
of the
competition

image

By placing the chef’s soul at the heart of the competition, the ArsNova International Culinary Prize is designed to encourage a signature cuisine that promotes the flagship product for the chosen annual theme, through Chefs who draw on tradition whilst also delivering their own interpretations in a personal, contemporary world of creativity.

Covering nine countries, the Prize takes place in two stages: national selections followed by an international final.

The theme for 2025 is the female duck.

Find out more about the theme

 

 

The Culinary Prize is a means of passing on traditional skills that conveys the spirit of today’s sparkling signature cuisine and reveals the talent of the great chefs of tomorrow.
