Two chefs from Villa's Restaurant VMF are set to compete in a live cook-off after reaching the final of the MARCHE Young Chef of the Year.
Laurence Jervis and Luke Miller will be demonstrating their culinary class in front of a live audience at the University College Birmingham on February 18.
The heat will be on for the Villa pair, who must produce a classic starter, poached egg hollandaise and a fish course of their own choosing in just one hour.
Restaurant VMF also has finalists in two other top categories at the MARCHE Awards, which recognises excellence in the catering and hospitality industry.
Tim Blake is vying for the Chef of the Year award, while Tim, Feti Taflaj and Craig Gent have all reached the final in the Cook and Serve category.
The final awards will be presented at the ICC on March 25.
These nominations follow on from previous MARCHE awards successes for Restaurant VMF.
Richard Dutton won a silver medal in the Chef of the Year category, while Frances Cash earned Young Chef of the Year silver 12 months earlier.
The plaudits have continued to flood in for Restaurant VMF, which is located in the Directors suite at Villa Park.
