Welcome Team England to Young Chef Olympiad

English cuisine encompasses the cooking styles, traditions and recipes associated with England. It has distinctive attributes of its own, but also shares much with wider British cuisine, partly through the importation of ingredients and ideas from North America, China, and India during the time of the British Empire and as a result of post-war immigration.
Traditional meals have ancient origins, such as bread and cheese, roasted and stewed meats, meat and game pies, boiled vegetables and broths, and freshwater and saltwater fish.

About Young Chef Prachi Mehta


I am a 20 year old student studying at the University of West London. I am a very enthusiastic chef and am willing to use all my knowledge, education and experience to thrive through any challenges and boundaries in my professional and personal life. Living in the UK on my own, away from my parents, has made me a more determined and stronger individual. I am able to make more crucial decisions on my own. I love facing new challenges but above all I love overcoming them. My lectures at the University help me build up my conficence. I enjoy following and learning the new trends and cuisine that new chefs are trying. I always incorporate them in developing new dishes.
