Budding chefs showcase culinary talents in national contest

Year 11 Catering students showcased their culinary talents as part of the national Futurechef competition.

The contest, run by Springboard, is aimed at students aged between 12 and 16-years-old and has been running for 19 years with schools all over the country getting involved. It consists of four stages: school heats, local finals, regional finals and ultimately, the national final, which will be hosted by Westminster Kingsway college.

Food Technology teacher, Miss E Williams organised Highfields’ heat, which saw Chirag Verma and Charlie Baker named as winners after making standout dishes on a £5 budget.

The winning pair then went on to each create a two-course meal in the ‘local heat’ at St Edmund’s Catholic Academy, being judged on a number of factors, including skills and techniques, creativity and presentation, nutritional balance, composition, taste and flavour.
