Success is on the menu for ‘masterchef’
●●Artist Jane McNeill at work and, right, one of her paintings A YOUNGSTER at a Heald Green primary school has showed off her culinary skills to be declared the winner of a ‘masterchef ’ style competition.
The annual contest is held for pupils in year five at Etchells Primary School and the entrants are asked to bring a dish of their choice – and making – into the school for the teachers to try.
A shortlist is then created and those named as the finalists made their dish again in school for the head chef at the Pointing Dog in Cheadle.
Farah Hussain was declared the overall winner and was invited with her family to the Pointing Dog where her dish, vegetable samosas, had been made into a special starter and featured on the main menu.
