Eight young chefs rolled up their sleeves and pulled on their pinnies to battle it out in the Rotary Young Chef of the Year contest at Cockermouth School.
The annual competition has been running for more than 20 years and was fiercely contested.
All year nine students took part in the first stage of the contest and were asked to make a dish using a local ingredient.
Rotarians, Allan Fowler, President Andy Carter and John Rael judged the meals, assisting the judging were Andy Carter's wife Diane, and Stuart Powley, head chef at The Scafell Hotel near Keswick.
The winner was Matthew Morris, 13, of Eaglesfield, who made a Sunday roast and sticky toffee pudding. Runners-up were Grace Lee and Molly Rankin.
