Olivia into District Final of Rotary Chef Competition

Rotary Chef

 

Last Thursday, two GCSE food students from year 11 took part in the school cook-off, for the Rotary Young Chef competition 2018.  Olivia Lovell and Beth White both cooked two courses in two hours, whilst being judged by chef Mark Vaughan and Rotary members Diana Apps and Les Fry.  They both remained calm and focused throughout, even though the kitchen became very hot during the afternoon.   Olivia’s dishes proved to be the most popular, and she will now go on to represent the school at the District Final of the competition in February 2018.

Olivia’s menu consisted of Pan fried medallions of pork with a cream and mushroom sauce, wilted spinach and chive mash, followed by white chocolate and almond cheesecake with raspberry cream and caramel and hazelnut shards. Her dessert was fabulous, beautifully presented and delicious, a real indulgent treat!

Well done to both girls for taking part and producing some lovely dishes that were a pleasure to taste.
