Aylsham High pupil Scarlett Addison cooked up a storm to reach Springboard’s FutureChef Regional Final.

On Friday at City College Norwic, four young, aspiring chefs competed in FutureChef 2017. FutureChef directly relates to the national curriculum and gives young people a life skill. It aims to tackle the severe skills shortage facing hospitality by inspiring 12-16 year olds to develop their cooking skills and understanding of nutrition.

Springboard’s FutureChef features a four stage national competition, annually involving more than 8,000 participants. It also includes classroom resources, chef demonstrations and skills challenges, and forms a link between schools and hospitality employers.

Scarlett, 16, went through to reach the East of England Regional Final of Springboard’s FutureChef competition with her menu of duck and chips followed by “floating islands”.

Scarlett said: “I really enjoy cooking and love working at Benedicts Restaurant part time, it’s so much fun. I am looking forward to working towards the regional final.”

The competition will culminate on March 27, with the National Final taking place at Westminster Kingsway College in London.
