Thanks again to Kathryn Wilson and Kent College for all their help
and support that allowed us to stage our first Young Chef competition local
A big thank you also to our Head Judge Executive Chef, Christopher
Edwards of East Quay Venue, Whitstable for giving up his time and passing on his
expertise to the contestants.
The photos are a representation only of all the hard work put in
by the four student contestants Channice, Daisy, Reese (all from Kent College) and
Max (from Herne Bay High) and whilst there can only be one winner of the heat
they should all be extremely proud of their entries. It really was a great
morning and I'm so pleased of what they achieved.
The Winner of our round is Channice Marks (the 2nd girl from the
left in main picture) who, for her main course, made us individual meat pies
served with mashed potatoes and vegetables. Her dessert was amazing; Baked
Alaska which was glorious in taste, texture and look.
The other entrants are (again, using the same picture from left to
right), Daisy O'Connor, Reese Robinson and Max Pashley.
Daisy made us ricotta and egg yolk stuffed large ravioli served in
a butter sauce for the main course and then a raspberry & white chocolate
cheesecake served with raspberry coulis.
Reese cooked salmon fillet served with a dill & mustard sauce,
duchess potatoes and asparagus followed by red berry crumble served with
Max prepared seared scallops with black pudding slices on a pea
