The Thomas Hardye School

Rotary Young Chef Competition

Young Chef


Earlier this month, Olivia Lovell in 11KM represented the school in the District final of the Rotary Young Chef competition, held at Burnham –on-Sea. 

She produced some fantastic restaurant quality food, including a starter of pheasant and pigeon Scotch egg with a wasabi mayo and wasabi leaf salad, followed by a beef wellington slice with a stock mashed potato and local roast heritage carrots, followed by a passion fruit cheesecake served with ginger brittle tuilles and a passion fruit and mango sauce. 

Her emphasis was on seasonal produce with strong flavours, which obviously impressed the judges, as she was one of three students of the nine competing to go through to the next round, to be held in Taunton on 17 March.  Very well done to Olivia, completing all these dishes in two hours available was no mean feat, showing commitment, lots of hard work and the ability to work well under pressure.

We wish her lots of luck in the Regional final next month.
