Copper Skillet Program Details:

Once again, we are proud to announce that we have begun planning for IACC’s 15th Annual Copper Skillet Global Chef of the Year Competition.

IACC invites American chefs to submit entries for the IACC Copper Skillet Cook-off.

There are two categories of entry:
1. A senior category (26 years of age and older)
2. A junior category (under 26 years)

The junior and senior winners from the U.S. Cook-off will advance to stage 2 of the competition—at the Americas Chapter Cook-off—where they will compete against the American junior and senior chefs.

The final stage of the competition is the Global Copper Skillet Final taking place on Tuesday, April 17, 2018, in Philadelphia, where six chefs will vie for the coveted Copper Skillet award.

Chefs should review the Copper Skillet international guidelines, which can be found by clicking here. The deadline for submitting entries is Friday, December 1, 2017, with selected participants being notified by Friday, December 8, 2017 — six weeks prior to the competition.

Chefs – feel free to review list of pantry items.
