Five students from Bradley Stoke Community School (BSCS) and a sixth from Marlwood School took part in the local round of the Young Chef of the Year competition on Wednesday 25th November – an event organised by Bradley Stoke Rotary Club.
Each competitor was set the task of preparing a two course meal for two, comprising of a main course and a desert, on a budget of £10.
The winner on the night was Keeva Holder (Marlwood), with Ciera Burns of BSCS taking the runner-up’s spot.
Keeva, whose menu consisted of crab, chilli and rocket pasta followed by chocolate and caramel soufflé tart, now goes forward to the regional final of the Rotary competition.
Currently studying food technology at A-level, Keeva is hoping to win a place to study for a Grand Diploma at the world famous Le Cordon Bleu in Paris. She is adding to her experience by running her own business baking cakes for special occasions.
The winner was presented with a Mall Cribbs voucher to the value of £30 and a Bradley Stoke Rotary Apron, the runner-up a £15 voucher and an apron.
