The Rotary Club of Darenth Valley held their annual young chef competition at Longfield Academy on 9th January. This was an early heat of the Rotary International Competition, covering the whole of Great Britain and Ireland. The judges, Rotarians Josie Morgan and Ricky Pristernik, were impressed by the high standard of the three course lunches, delivered by two students.
There could only be one winner… James from Longfield Academy was declared the winner. He then went on to the Rotary District Finals in Orpington on the 26th January and unfortunately didn’t get through to the next heat, but produced excellent dishes that impressed the judges.
Many congratulations James, and a well done to all the chefs that took part, it was a tough competition.
