Young Chefs battle it out at The Radclyffe School

Rotary Club Young Chef competition

Young Chefs from seven schools across Greater Manchester pitted their gastronomic skills against each other at The Radclyffe School.

The event is the District Final of the Rotary Club’s Young Chef Competition. Two students from The Radclyffe School, Anishah Rahman and Brandon Prophet won through a school heat and are taking part alongside young people from seven other schools.

The chefs are tasked with producing a three course meal in just two-and-a-half hours. As well as the quality of the food, the students’ creations were judged on planning, costing, hygiene and neatness and the presentation of the table.

Both Anisah and Brandon can be very proud of the delicious and beautifully presented dishes they served – Anisah missed out on second place by the narrowest of margins.

Musical entertainment was provided by the Key Stage 4 Vocal Group and some of our talented musicians. The magic skills of Year 11 student Mamunur Rahman also delighted the guests as they waited for the meals to be served.

The Young Chef competition is just one of the competitions organised by the Rotary Club to encourage and develop young people’s creativity. Chadderton & Failsworth Rotary Club President Reg Lord told competitors, “We are very pleased that you have taken the time and trouble to enter. This competition will enhance your own capabilities and boost your school’s reputation.”

This is the second year that The Radclyffe School has hosted the District Final, making use of the school’s excellent Food Technology facilities. Deputy Head Jane Wernick said, “We are very pleased to welcome our guests back to the school for this entertaining and mouth-watering event. The standard of cooking from all the young people is exceptional, showing off their skills and imagination to present such outstanding meals.”
