Rotary Young Chef Competitions

2017-18 Regional Finals

Following our district final on the 25th January at Ulverston Victoria High School winner Freya McCall from Austin Friars School in Carlisle sponsored by the R.C of Carlisle along with two runners up, Lucy Hetherington also from Austin Friars and Catriona Merry from Millom School sponsored by the R.C of Millom represented District 1190 at this year’s Regional Young Chef Final.

The final was held on Saturday 17th March at Hopwood Hall College Rochdale. Each of the three districts in our region put forward three competitors covering the whole of Cumbria, Lancashire, Mid and North Wales, Merseyside, Cheshire, Shropshire, Manchester, Wigan, Bolton, Bury, Rochdale, Yorkshire and the Isle of Man.

Freya, Lucy and Catriona worked extremely hard and produced three stunning courses of food worthy of the National Final. Sadly only the winner from the Regional Final can move forward in the competition.

The Regional Final was won by Tomas Atkinson Ysgol Brynhyfryd School Sponsor RC of Ruthin. Tomas will now represent our Region in the forthcoming National Final. We all wish him well.

The National Final will take place on Sunday 28th April at Abraham Darby Academy Telford.
