Regional final was on Saturday March 22nd at Kirkby in Ashfield.

Rotary Clubs believe it is very important to encourage cooking amongst young people as it is a growing interest and a valuable life skill. Rotary clubs in association with leading olive oil company Filippo Berio, have organised Young Chef Competitions at District level in the Spring term.

The competition goes from strength to strength  producing some superb quality cooking from young people aged 11 to 17.

At  regional level the young chefs become shortlisted down to eight winners who will  compete in the national final.

The young chefs have to prepare and present a 3 course healthy meal for 2 people fully costed and planned for under £15.

 Lora cooked:

Sautéed chicken liver and cream cheese mousse served with soda bread farls and a rocket and beetroot salad

Baked cod loin with a herby coriander crust served on a pea and bacon risotto with bacon crisps

Light lime cheesecake on a crispy ginger nut base served with candid raspberry, lime and ginger
