Eight Lithuanian restaurant chefs participated in the Young Chefs Championship which was organised by the Lithuanian Association of Restaurant Chefs and Confectioners. During the two and half hour contest, each participant was required to make two competitive dishes: a hot dish of using chicken and a dessert using dried apples, chocolate and sugar Farino. In the end, it was Telegrafas chef Pavel Koncejalov who got the top score and was chosen the Best Young Chef of Lithuania in 2014 by the juding committee.
The young chef also won the award for the Most Creative Chicken Dish. He produced a slow cooked chicken mousse roll with couscous and confit chicken legs which was awarded a special prize.
