Cooking up a storm

Aldridge school has taken part in the Rotary Young Chef of the Year competition. It is a local based competition that runs each year against a number of local schools. On Friday 5 budding chefs began in the competition. These students have worked incredibly hard in the run up to the competition under the guidance of Mrs Briggs, to plan and develop a menu to meet the strict criteria. The competition began at 1.30pm under the watchful eye of 3 judges from the Rotary Club. The students all worked relentlessly within the 95 minutes allowed to produce some stunning food. The judges had a tough decision and deliberated for over an hour. The judges were extremely impressed with the standard of food produced and have requested that one student provide her recipe for the ginger and lemon cheesecake she produced. This is a huge achievement for these students who are now through to the final stage which will take place at Walsall College, where they will produce their menu in The Littleton restaurant kitchens with the chefs observing each step. The overall winner of the competition will be awarded the accolade of Rotary Young Chef of the Year and their dishes will be on the menu at The Littleton restaurant.
A massive well done to all the students involved, they should all be very proud of their achievements, Mrs Briggs is extremely proud of them all
