This year four students from Ellowes Hall entered the local stage of the Dudley Rotary chef and. Students had to cook a hot main and a dessert to serve 2 people for under £15.


All the students did amazingly well and demonstrated high ability technical skills like making pasta and bread along with filleting fish. All students received a certificate and a cookbook and the winner also received a gift voucher.

Rebecca was awarded as the KS3 winner, following in the footsteps of her sister Lydia who is competing in the local stage of the Springboard Chef Competition next week.

Quotes from the judges-

“Rebecca stole the show with an update of a French classic chicken supreme in a tarragon sauce”

“Hattie cooked the pasta main, and did a lovely apple rosette as a pudding, but the table layout she put on was just superb, I would love to see her back next year, as she just missed out, but her thought and ‘follow through’ were spot on”
