On Friday 18th November, part of the Rotary Young Chef Competition, sponsored by Filippo Berio, took place at Chessington School. Budding chefs from The Hollyfield School, Grey Court School and Chessington School competed in the fun and friendly competition for a place to go through to the under 17's district final.

Taking part were:

  • Hollyfield: Oliver C & Naseem A.
  • Greycourt: Sophia C, Ben H & Isla D.
  • Chessington: Lianna P, Rosie S & Ronnie D.

The task: create a three course healthy meal in 2 hours comprising a starter, main course and dessert for two people and costing less than £22!

The judges criteria, from cost, healthy choices, correct use of equipment, neatness, range of skills, hygiene, presentation and of course taste, gave for a tight competition.

RBK Mayor, Cllr Yogan Yoganathan, joined the judges and members of the Rotary Club to announce the winner, hand out certificates and the trophy.

Congratulations to the winners:

  • 1st place: Sophia C. from Greycourt
  • 2nd place: Ben H. from Greycourt
