Bronwyn cooks off in the national final of Young Chef Competition

Congratulations to former student Bronwyn Roche who represented Bourne Academy in the NATIONAL FINAL of the Rotary Young Chef Competition. This is an amazing achievement to reach the national finals and be one of the top six young chefs in the country.

The final that took place in Alcester, Warwickshire was judged by experienced chefs Mark Williams, Walter Zanre and Richard Walker, who were incredibly impressed by the culinary skills on display.

There were four prizes up for grabs, and Bronwyn was awarded ‘highly commended’ for her tantalising dishes. As well as receiving this accolade, she was presented with a set of engraved chefs tools and a goodie bag of food ingredients.

Using French classics and the animated film Ratatouille as inspiration, Bronwyn’s menu featured French Onion Soup, Ratatouille and Tarte Tatin, but with added twists to elevate humble ingredients to a menu worthy of reaching the final.

If any students are interested in representing Bourne Academy in the competition next year, then they should speak to Mrs Roche or Mrs Elliott in the Food Technology department.

To take part in competition, you have to design, prepare, cook and serve a three-course healthy meal comprising of a starter, main course and dessert for two people costing less than £22 – this then has to be cooked in only two hours. Points are then awarded for healthy ingredients, costing, planning, timing, cooking skills, use of equipment and the neatness of the chef’s work area.
