Once again the students from Friesland school donned their aprons and got cracking with the second annual Friesland School Chef competition. The students all aged 11 to 13, had to produce a two course meal based on the Eatwell guide for healthy eating. Two rounds later and we had 8 semi finalists battling it out with two international dishes for inspection. The judges, Mr Patterson (our resident Assistant Head foodie) and Alison Bowley (the wife of the Long Eaton Rotary Club president) had a very difficult job choosing the four teams for the final. The final task was to produce two British dishes. We had a good range of dishes but the winning combination was ‘Roast dinner in a Yorkshire pudding’ with roast vegetables, beef and some fabulous beetroot horseradish, finished off with treacle tart. It was all prepared, cooked and presented in just an hour and a half. Very impressive.
Mrs Bowley said “It was a real pleasure to see such talented youngsters at work and, even better, getting to taste their menus. I was so impressed with the standard of cooking and they all should be very proud indeed of their achievements”
Well done to Anna and Isobel in Year 8: Friesland Master Chefs 2017!
