On Friday 10th December Nick and Buzz were honored to be asked to judge The Rotary Young Chef Competition of Norfolk at the City of Norwich School. This annual competition is open to students in full time secondary education and who are aged 17 years or under. The finalists were asked to prepare a three course meal for 2 people in 2 hours, plus 30 minutes prior set up time and all within a budget of £15.00. The winner was 16 year old Elise Mabbutt from Aylsham High School.
Nick and Buzz were very impressed with the overall standard of food produced, but it was Elise’s innate kitchen skills, excellent time keeping and presentation of food that really set her apart from the competition. Elise will now join other regional winners in the district competition and who knows with some mentoring from Buzz & Martin (Brasted’s Head Chef) earn her place in the National Finals.
