Sarah siz­zles in Young Chef of Year com­pe­ti­tion

Bray People - - News -

SOME up and com­ing young Gor­don Ram­sey’s in the mak­ing, mi­nus the bad lan­guage, pit­ted their culi­nary skills against one an­other in the Wick­low Ro­tary Young Chef of the Year com­pe­ti­tion.

Ba­si­cally com­peti­tors had to demon­strate their skills in menu and bud­get plan­ning, sourc­ing and pur­chas­ing in­gre­di­ents, hy­gien­i­cally cook­ing and serv­ing a healthy two or three course meal for two.

East Glendalough and the Abbey Com­mu­nity Col­lege both al­ready held heats in the school to de­cide who makes it through to the Wick­low district fi­nal, or­gan­ised by the Wick­low Ro­tary Club.

At the district fi­nal held in the Grand Ho­tel they were also ques­tioned by ex­pe­ri­enced chefs about what they were do­ing and how the se­lected their menu and in­gre­di­ents.

Due to the high stan­dards shown by all the district fi­nal­ists, the judges had spent a great deal of time de­bat­ing who the even­tual win­ner would be.

Fi­nally it was de­cided that Sarah Byrne of the Abbey Com­mu­nity Col­lege was the win­ner, just edg­ing out Stephen Mar­shall of East Glendalough into run­ners-up spot.

Sarah will now go on to the re­gional fi­nal and from there hope­fully the pres­ti­gious na­tional fi­nal.
