Young Chef 2015 - District Final (27 February 2016)

Saturday 27th February saw the district round of the 2015/16 Rotary Young chef competition held in Bournemouth. The competition was once again a great success with 11 students from throughout the region participating all demonstrating an extremely high standard.

Guernsey was represented by Jacques Gallagher of St Sampsons High School who won the local competition in November. His chosen menu was:

  • Pan seared scallops with Jerusalem artichokes Volute
  • Pan roasted Guinea fowl breast served with stuffed ballotine of Guinea fowl, honey parsnip tarte tatin,char grilled courgettes and port reduction
  • Chocolate Fondant served with clementine marmalade chocolate sauce and Creme fraiche 
Jacques was supported by his teacher Paul Giles Phillips of St Sampsons High School and his mother Christine and they were hosted by Brian Acton of Rotary Club of Guernsey.

Whilst Jacques was not successful in being placed in this round he should be very proud of his achievements in producing a first class menu and participating in such a challenging and demanding competition.

We should once again like to thank our main sponsors The Channel Islands Cooperative Society and supporting sponsors Aurigny Airlines and Industrial and Leisure Clothing for their valued support without which students would not be able to participate in this competition and develop their culinary skills.
