Holly hopes she has recipe for contest success
ASOUTHPORT dinner lady could win the title of School Chef of the Year 2017. Holly Charnock, who cooks for the pupils at Kingsmeadow primary school, has been shortlisted in the regional final of the competition.
Holly will battle it out against five other school chefs in a live ‘cook-off’ in Cheshire next week.
Against the clock and in front of a panel of judges. The six must prepare main courses and desserts suitable for 11-year-olds.
Each will have 90 minutes to prep and cook the food, with a maximum spend of £1.30 per main and dessert allowed.
The winner from this regional heat will go on to represent the North West of England against nine other regional champions in the national final which is to be held in March.
The cook-off will take place at Cheshire Cookery School on Tuesday, January 17.
Holly’s impressive menu will see judges sample Cheerio Chicken in a flatbread with homemade salsa, cheese and salad for main course, and a toffee apple cake and Chantilly cream for dessert.
The other five chefs hail from Warrington, Stockport, Tameside, Morecambe and Manchester.
