Leah rules the kitchen in young chef challenge

It might have been hot outside, but temperatures have been rising in the kitchen for Year 9 students at Brimsham Green School.

They have been involved in the annual Rotary Young Chef challenge, with Leah Walker triumphing by the end of the day. 

The competition required the young chefs to prepare and plate two high-quality dishes including a main course and dessert in 105 minutes.

The contestants were required to discuss with judge Sam Wells, from Hobbs House Bakery, how the ingredients they’d used meet the Eatwell Guide. The Eatwell Guide issued by the Government divides the foods we eat and drink into 5 main food groups and shows how much should come from each to achieve a healthy, balanced diet

Leah’s entry of Moroccan chicken with vegetables followed by lemon cheesecake clearly impressed the judges. Four other cash prizes were awarded, and participation certificates were given to all the students.
