Talented Food Technology and Catering students at our school have several recent successes including reaching the regional finals of the Rotary Young Chef of the Year in successive years.  We so impressed the judges, we have been accepted to host this year’s regional heat too in December.  However, the first stage of the competition took part on November 20th when 13 eager cooks from years 7-11 got busy in our kitchen! The cooking challenge for our aspiring young chefs is to create and present a healthy two course meal for two on a fixed budget of £10, completed in just two hours.
