The answer was a superb and delicious dinner of a Pea and Mint Soup starter, followed by Mexican Pasta, and a magnificent healthy Fruit Cheesecake for sweet. All this accomplished by Young Chef Rachel Jones from Ysgol Treffynnon, who was the entry from Flint and Holywell Rotary Club in the annual District Rotary Young Chef competition. All this took place on Saturday 8 February at Coleg Cambria, and judged by Michelin Star Chef Bryan Webb and owner of Tyddyn Llan, and Paul Smith, Chief Lecturer at Coleg Cambria.
Rachel had just 3 hours to produce this great dinner, and within a budget of just £20. Although not placed in the top two, Rachel received some very complimentary comments from the judges.
This was the first year that your local Rotary have entered a competitor, and we will certainly do so again, as it allows young students such as Rachel good opportunity to showcase her talents. Our warmest thanks go to Mrs Jenny Morris, teacher at Ysgol Treffynnon who has organised our entrant and supported Rachel.
Well done Rachel, a great effort. Even with these obvious skills, she still aims to be a Doctor!
