Nine students took part in the Chase final of the Rotary Young Chef of the Year Competition. They had been selected from the 50 or so students who had taken part in the preliminary rounds in the school.
The challenge was for the students to prepare, cook and serve a two course meal for 2 people in 90 minutes.
The judges commented on the high standard of food prepared by all the students and were impressed by all dishes that they tasted.
The winner, Faye Brock will represent the Chase at the regional round of the competition and will also assist the chefs at the Malvern Hills Hotel to prepare her menu to be served at the Rotary Celebration of Youth evening in January 2018.
2nd place was Theo Shuard and 3rd place Kieran Harris.
Well done to all other competitors
Thanks must go to Mrs Borthwick for organising the competition and to the judges Jenni Griggs, Yvonne Brook and Ann Goode. I have always believed that such events are made for the students (and audience) by the quality of the feedback form the judges. The serious way the three judges approached their roles, the way they chatted to the students while they were cooking and the judges' feedback at the end was simply superb - explaining what they thought they did well, gentle and constructive pointers of how they can improve and lots and lots of encouragement.
