Young Chef Competition 2016-7


Reflecting Ludlow’s status as the UK’s pre-eminent Food Town, Ludlow Rotary Club launched the 2016/7 Rotary Young Chef Competition with 5 local schools and colleges, including Ludlow College, Ludlow School, Tenbury High, Wigmore School and Bishops Castle Community College taking part in the preliminary heat. Each school first ran its own internal competition to decide who would represent them at Ludlow College on November 28th. The completion was open to 11 to 17 year olds and involved preparing and presenting a two course meal for 2. The individual entrants choose their own menu for which the ingredients must not cost more than £10.

The Ludlow round of the competition was scored by a panel of local judges including nationally acclaimed chef, Andrew Birch from Forelles at Fishmore Hall and marks were awarded for taste and presentation as well as the skills demonstrated and the healthy choices of the dishes. Contestants had a total of 95 minutes to prepare and present their dishes on an attractively laid table for 2.

Harriette, the winning chef from the Ludlow, round went through to the District Final which was be held at Shrewsbury College on 13th Feb 2017. Andrew Birch was again be on the Judging panel for the District Final. Unfortunately Harriette was eliminated in the face of very strong competition.
