On Thursday 28 November, we held our annual Rotary Masterchef Competition, with our generous sponsor Gracewell.  Students from Years 10, 11 and 12 competed against each other to secure a place in the next stages of the competition.

Once again, we were lucky to have the fantastic support from local chefs who gave up their precious time to judge the competition. Ruth Brooks from Mrs B’s Catering Company, Gareth Burgess, owner of ‘I’ll cook, you pour’ www.illcookyoupour and freelance Chef, James Morrison.

The students were asked to cook a healthy 3 course meal for 2 people within a budget of £20. They gave it their all - demonstrating high levels of skill under the high-pressured situation and worked so hard. The Mayor of Frome, Mark Dorrington, also popped into to meet the students and wished them good luck - Jamie Leigh Parker, Beth Freestone, Millie Light, and Taila Maxted in Year 10, Polly Thomas, Izzy Hobbs, Oz Mills in Year 11, and Eden Yates, Anna Sales, and Ella Gillard in Year 12. 

The competition culminated in a presentation of the 1st prize and trophy from Principal, Mrs Reynolds to Izzy Hobbs in Year 11. Izzy will now go through to the next stage and compete against other regional schools.

The Highly Commended award went to Taila Maxted, in 2nd place was Ella Gillard, and in 3rd place was Beth Freestone.

We are extremely proud of all their achievements, a special thank you goes to Mike Darville from Frome Rotary Club, and Debbie Goodsell from Gracewell, who organised personalised ‘Chef Whites’ for the students, goody bags and the Winner’s Trophy.
