Robert Stone receives his Cookery Book from The Mayor of Bury St Edmunds. Clr. Bob Cockle
Robert Stone, student at Neale-Wade College, and March Rotary Young Chef 2011, travelled to Bury St Edmund on Saturday 11 February, to compete with seven others from across East Anglia, in the second round of this Nation wide cookery competition.
His chosen menu included Chicken Supreme stuffed with a mushroom duxelle and a Smitaine Sauce. Others made such exotic dishes as Rack of Lamb, Red Curry Fish Cakes, and 'Pelmeni', a traditional Kazastani dumpling.
The Judges, who had the enviable task of tasting the treats, also looked at preparation, presentation, and well as the palatability. In congratulating the youngsters, they said the marking was very close across the board.
Denniss Lusnikovs, sponsored by Rotary Club of Kings Lynn Trinity, was awarded first place, with Elise Mabbutt sponsored by Rotary Club of Norwich, runner up. These two now move to the Regional finals next month at Hitchin.
All competitors received Cookery books, presented by the Mayor of Bury St Edmunds, Clr. Bob Cockle. Though unsuccessful, Robert was a credit to Neale-Wade and March, he is eligible to take part again next year.
