Students from across West Norfolk have had a taste of success after competing in this year’s Young Chef local final.

The Trinity Rotary Club of King’s Lynn organised the event, which was held at the College of West Anglia, to find talented young cooks.

Three of the five students who were judged to be the best of the bunch will now go forward to compete in the regional finals.

The Young Chef competition encourages young people in West Norfolk to get creative in the kitchen by preparing meals from scratch.

Participants were required to create a healthy two-course meal for two with a budget of just £10.

Five students took part, representing Springwood High School, Marshland High School and the College of West Anglia.
