Once again Dalbeattie entered this annual competition :

The two winners of our Club round, Alice Maxwell and Georgia Johnston, were among the ten Young Chefs, representing five of the Area’s Rotary Clubs, who  gathered at Kirkcudbright Academy to compete for two places in the District final in Livingston,

All ten really impressed the two professional judges, Tom Kirkpatrick and Paul Wilkinson, with all ten showing a great array of very creative culinary skills. Tom confirmed that the standard this year was extremely high, the results were very close indeed and all chefs should be very proud of what they had produced in the ninety minutes they had to prepare a main course and a dessert, spending no more than £10 on ingredients.

The winner was Morag Stewart representing Thornhill Rotary Club, with our Alice Maxwell the runner up. We wish them well in the District final which takes place on February 4th 2017.
