Well done to all the students who took part in the Rotary Young Chef competition this year.
Round 1 saw 15 Richard Lander School chefs, from years 7–10, cooking 2 courses in under two hours. Their food was judged by professional chefs, Grant Goodson and Adam Banks, from Fifteen in Newquay, and Dale McIntosh from Gylly Beach in Falmouth.
All the judges commented that that the standard of all the food produced was exceptionally high. After much deliberation, the three winners were:
1st Place – Perdy Woodley Clarke Y7 GJUR
2nd Place – Warrick Bastin Y7 PKBO
3rd Place – Ella Snell Y7 GRKN
These students then progressed onto Round 2, where they competed against students from other Cornish schools; Falmouth School, Penryn College and Helston College. They had to produce three courses of restaurant quality food in under 2 hours. All three of our entrants did amazingly well and once again the judges were extremely impressed. Perdy Woodley Clarke from Year 7 came third overall and will now go onto the next round in Dawlish in February.
We will be eagerly following Perdy Superchef’s journey and keeping our fingers crossed for a smooth, delicious and successful experience during Round 3. Thank you to Mrs Jones and Molly from the Rotary for organising this competition.
