Writtle Young Chef of the Year Competition 2016 ...
Congratulations to all the children who took part in the Writtle Young Chef of the Year competition!
Julie, the Catering Manager for the school chose the 2 finalists from each class - from Reception to Year 6. The children came to the farm on 7th July where they collected their ingredients from our Packhouse - the fruit and vegetables from Russell and their meat from Head Butcher Gary - before heading back to the kitchen to cook.
It was a fun filled day (if a little chaotic at times!) and with the help of their parents/carers, chefs Andy and Pete, Gary and Linda of Ashlyns and the staff from the school; they produced some absolutely wonderful food.
It was an incredibly difficult decision for Pete and Andy, but congratulations to Freya Scott-Simon who was the overall winner.
Thank you to everyone who took part, it was an amazing day!
