District 1100 Final of the RIBI National
Young Chef Competition 2017
We had six very talented young chefs competing today - for just two
places in the Regional Final on the 18th of March being hosted at Rugby
College, Rugby. CV21 1AR.
As all are highly skilled, and have produced excellent dishes during the
previous rounds of the competition, this District Final is going to be a
very close-run event.
The competition aims to encourage young cooking enthusiasts to
develop food presentation skills, organisational and planning skills, and
to demonstrate their ability to cope in a demanding situation.
As in previous years, the standard, both of food preparation and of
presentation, has been very high, and this fits with Rotary’s aim to give
opportunities to young people, and to encourage the pursuit of
Rotary District 1100 would like to thank today’s judges who have
generously given up their time to share their knowledge and expertise
and to encourage our young competitors.
We would also like to thank the Food Technology Department of The
Cotswold School led by Cath Lamb and also the Rotary Club of North
Cotswold for hosting this District Final, and for welcoming Rotary, the
Young Chef competition, our competitors and their supporters.
Following on from today the Regional final is on the 18th of March with
the National Final on the 20th May at Lincoln College and we sincerely
hope that one of our competitors today might reach that stage.
We have a great reputation in this District for success with Youth
competitions and particularly in Young Chef with Samantha Rides being
a National Young Chef finalist in 2015 and Marcia Rowlands last year.
Thank you all for your support we hope you enjoy the experience
Good Luck to all our competitors!
