A SCHOOL pupil has won a prize for cooking green Thai curry and a chocolate and hazelnut pudding.
Molly Warren, a Year 12 pupil at Stamford High School, scooped first prize in the Rotary Club of Stamford’s annual junior chef competition.
Second prize went to Abi Cummings, a Year 11 pupil at Stamford Queen Eleanor School, who cooked chicken and roasted vine tomatoes on a bed of wilted spinach, followed by brandy snap baskets.
Third prize went to Year 12 Stamford High School pupil Milly Adams for her chicken pie and chocolate fondants.
Eight young chefs aged between 13 and 17 took part in the challenge, which involved cooking a healthy and exciting two-course meal for under £10, using as many local or fresh ingredients as possible.
Head of home economics at Stamford High School Tessa Bennie said: “I was very impressed with the high standard of meals prepared. The entrants all displayed impressive culinary skills under pressurised conditions.”
