Meet the Young Cook 2018 finalists

Published on 08/06/18

We are incredibly proud of our students who have cooked their way through the finals of the Young Cook awards. 

Six students from Orchard School competed in the semi-finals at Oasis Brightstowe last term, with Harry and Kashvi impressing the judges so much that they qualified for the finals. 

They each cooked an impressive main dish and a dessert. Harry mustered up a seafood paella and a citrus berry crumble, while Kashvi made a coconut and spinach chicken curry, and a chai seed and fruit pudding.  

The final cook-off to find the most worthy winner of the ‘Young Cook 2018’ title will take place during Food Connections week, 11th-17th June 2018.  

Our students will be cooking their final dishes at Square Food Foundation on 14th June. 

The other students who took part in the semi-final were Tegan, Cassidy, Kail and Taylor. 

Emily Siddon, OSB Food teacher, said: "There were plenty of nerves and they all handled it extremely well.

"The dishes were amazing and every student confidently discussed their recipes and ideas.

"A huge well done to all of them but a particularly huge well done to Harry and Kashvi who have made it through to the finals!"

Teaching a City to Cook, the programme behind the competition, has been developed with the help of local professional chefs including Josh Eggleton from Pony and Trap, Adrian Kirikmaa from St Monica’s Trust and Barny Haughton from Square Food Foundation to encourage young people to eat more healthily.
