Seven young people competed in the final at Jersey College for Girls on 27th November 2014.  In a period of 2 hours each contestant needed to prepare and present a 3 course meal with an emphasis on using Genuine Jersey ingredients.  Each contestant created their own menu and the food had to be purchased at a cost of no more than 15.

Throughout the 2 hour period, they were questioned by the judges on their choice of dishes, the way each of the dishes complemented one another and on their cooking skills.

By common consent the standard of cooking and presentation was excellent and Emma Preisig triumphed in what was a very close contest. Emma received The Jersey Dairy Rotary Young Chef of the Year Jersey Trophy, the Genuine Jersey Trophy for the best use of Jersey produce and a Co-op gift voucher.

Emma now represents Jersey at the regional finals to be held in the UK during February.
