Today was a big day for me; I was taking part in Future Chef’s Local Finals and guess what? I became a runner-up and made it through to the Regional Finals taking place on the 15th of February!

About the competition:

The Future Chef Competition challenges students to cook under pressure and develop practical skills through timed cook-offs in school heats, local, regional and national finals.

  • Organised by Springboard, hosted by a local school or college, judged by industry chefs.
  • Participants cook a two-course meal for two people (a hot main course and a hot or cold dessert).
  • Budget: Up to £7.
  • Participants marked against specified judging criteria.
  • 1 winner progresses to stage 3 and receives an industry mentor and cookbook.
With the Judge; Gary Foakes – Executive Head Chef of Delaware North
