Skilled Student Chefs Impress!

On Thursday 18th January two of our talented students took part in the Rotary Young Chef’s Competition. Phoebe Alderwick (11T) and Seb Fitzmaurice (10K) both had to prepare a three course meal to show off their culinary skill and impress a panel of judges that were involved within the college and food industry. The students had just a few hours to produce their dishes after carefully preparing their menus. They had to also consider the table setting, dietary information and cost analysis as The scoring criteria included “Healthy Choice of dishes” as well as “Taste and Presentation” of each course.

Phoebe's Menu

Starter: Open lasagne of roasted squash and mushrooms with sage butter
Main: Fillet of fish with pepper sauce and rosemary potatoes
Dessert: Vanilla panna cotta with raspberry coulis

Seb's Menu

Starter: Mushroom Soufflé
Main: Garlic stuffed chicken breast served with vegetables & dauphinoise potatoes
Dessert: Passion fruit & lime tart served with sweetened cream

The competition took place at the Quantock restaurant at the Taunton Campus of Bridgwater and Taunton College where all of the competitors had access to a fully equipped, professional working kitchen. Phoebe said “Although it was quite stressful, we really learnt a lot especially about food hygiene and keeping clean. The kitchen had lots of big equipment which was great”. ”I had a great time”, continued Seb, “We had the chance to talk to industry experts and I even managed to maybe get a work experience placement at an award winning restaurant!”

Food Technology teacher Mrs Hardman added “The Rotary Young Chef Competition provides our students with the fantastic opportunity to be able to compete against students from other schools across Somerset.  Not only does it give them the chance to meet like minded other young people, it also enables them to test their skills, work in a full catering kitchen and get feedback from professional chefs.  Our students worked fantastically well and produced 3 course meals that the chefs said would not look out of place on their menus, as a school we are immensely proud of their achievements and hope that they go on from this and continue to develop their love of cooking.

Despite not taking the top spot, comments from the judges were very positive. They commented that “Phoebe and Seb were both excellent contestants and we, at Rotary, were extremely pleased to see a great variety of schools putting forward young people”. Many thanks go to the Rotary club and all those involved with organising and judging this event.

If you’d like to be considered for next year’s competition, please let the staff in the food department know or contact the Rotary Competition Organiser Mr Patrick Berry on patberrykt2003@yahoo.co.uk. 

This is a brilliant and challenging opportunity which we would love to see you thrive within. Well done Phoebe and Seb!
