Rotary Young Chef Competition 2017
On Friday 13 January 2017 two Year 7 Students, Samiya and Emily, took part in the Rotary Young Chef Competition, where they showcased some fantastic skills to the judges. Cooking skills, presentation and flavour of dish, consideration of healthy eating options and food hygiene issues, organisational and planning skills were all taken into consideration on the marking scheme. The presentation of the entry and the flavour and texture of the dish were judged and part of the marking process.
Samiya prepared fresh pasta with pesto, mushroom and chicken all made from scratch, showing some incredible skills at such a young age.
Emily’s dish was a Thai lemon chicken with vegetable rice. It was an extremely difficult decision and the final score was very close, but Emily’s flavours won her first prize.
Kingsbury High School is very proud to say that both students are through to the next round, the Preliminary heats, which will be held later this month at Park High School where the girls will compete against students from other local schools.
For this Samiya and Emily will be expected to prepare a main course plus a dessert. We wish them all the best of luck!
