The winner of a local Rotary young chef competition is aiming to cook up a storm once again when a district-wide cooking contest takes place next weekend.
Sam Jordan won Trinity Rotary Club’s Young Chef competition when it was held at Lynn’s College of West Anglia last November.
Now the college student is preparing to face competition from 15 other budding chefs when the Rotary Young Chef District semi-final is held at the college next Saturday, February 1, from 10am.
The competitors, who come from across East Anglia, will have to prepare, cook and serve a main course for two people within one hour, and the cost of the dish has to be no more than £7.50.
They will be expected to supply all their own equipment including any small electrical appliance, cooking utensils and knives.
There will be three judges and among the criteria on which the 16 competitors will be marked will be planning, costing, range of skills, neatness of working area and hygiene, use of time, meal served at correct temperature, presentation and taste.
The judges will then choose eight of the competitors to go forward to the district final, which will be held in Ipswich on March 8.
