Young Chefs Serve Up Success at CHS
16 November 2022
Well done to all eight of our students who took part in the Rotary International Young Chef Competition held at CHS in November:
- Imran A
- Rannia A
- Amelia B
- Zach B
- Luca D
- Lloyd E
- Ella M
- Finley PK.
You all worked so hard and produced some amazing results, you can be very proud of yourselves..
For this first round of the competition, the contestants were required to create a main meal for two people with a budget of £8.
The students had planned delicious meals and the standard of cooking from all the young chefs was very high, which made judging extremely difficult for Andrew Bourne, Director of The Alexandra Court Hotel, and retired Food teacher, Rosemary Knight.
- First prize was awarded to Year 9 Ella M for her menu of Rosemary Pork on Celeriac Mash with Purple Headed Broccoli and Pea Shoots, served with Apple Slaw and a Redcurrant Jus.
- Second place was awarded to Year 8 Amelia B for her meal of Pan Fried Sea Bass on a bed of Vegetable Risotto.
- The Third prize went to Year 10 Lloyd E, who cooked Griddled Rump Steak with Sautéed Potatoes and Asparagus.
The prizes, trophies and certificates were presented by Rotary members, Roger Shepherd (District Young Chef Competition Coordinator) and Eric Westwood ((Youth Activities Coordinator)
The first and second prize winners, Ella and Amelia, will now go forward in to the next round of the competition, the Local Round and compete against young chefs from other schools in the area.
