Rotary Guernsey Young Chef Competition

Guernsey Final - Friday 16th November at the College of Further Education

Congratulations to Guernsey Grammar School Year 10 student Ruby Hynes who won the Guernsey Final of the 2018/2019 Rotary Young Chef Competition on 16th November. Runner up was William Brook from Blanchelande College. The competitors had the task of producing a three course meal for two in two hours within a budget of £20.

Mercury were delighted to be a sponsor for this event and Ruby will now represent Guernsey at the next stage of the national competition, which takes place in Hampshire in March next year. Good luck Ruby!

The trophy for the tastiest dish went to Holly Neill from St. Anne’s School in Alderney. Jemima Carr from Blanchelande took the trophy for the best use of local produce while Markuss Embutneiks from La Mare de Carteret High School had the award for the best hygiene and safety practice. Charlotte Bertrand from Blanchelande won the kitchen craft trophy. A new trophy this year was donated by the College of FE for the most organised entrant and this was won by Owen Carre from Alderney. Head of the judges Paul Wilson said that all the entrants had produced food of a standard fit to be served at a good restaurant and he hoped that some of the entrants would find a career in hospitality.
