FutureChef Local Heat December 2022
On Friday 9th December, Alfie in Year 10 and Austin in Year 11 were the school heat finalists who travelled across to Blackpool & Fylde College, Bispham Campus to take part in the Lancashire & Cumbria heat of the competition. They were 2 of the pupils taking part in the largest UK local heat so the competition was fierce. All students were required to cook 2 portions of a main course with a £5 budget and within a 1 hour time frame and serve. The competition was judged by chefs from leading food suppliers and hotels.
All pupils taking part worked incredibly hard using skills such as butchery, pastry making, pasta making, sauce making and much much more. The standard was exceptional. Both boys had worked fantastically well in what is a very tough, demanding and energy zapping time. After the judges reached their decision we discovered that Alfie had in fact won the heat! He was very shocked to say the least but we were very proud.
This great news means that he will now receive mentoring from a chef before taking part in the Regional final (Lancs/Cumbria, Manchester, Liverpool) in St Helen’s in early January 2023. The winner of this heat will gain a place in the National Final at Westminster College, London. We wish him all the best for the next phase of the competition.
