The growing popularity of TV cooking spreads to the College of West Anglia in King’s Lynn next month (November).

Its students will be taking part in a heat of the Young Chef competition, supported by the Trinity Rotary Club.

Students will be challenged to prepare, in two hours, a three-course healthy meal (starter, main and dessert) for two people, costing less than £15 or Euro equivalent.

The heat will be staged at the Vancouver Building on November 19. And the winner, who should have been under 18 years of age at the end of August, goes forward to a district final which is being hosted by the College of West Anglia for the first time in two years in February.

There they will face competition, on Saturday, February 1, from other Rotary Club-organised teams at towns such as Wisbech, March, Thetford and Bury St Edmunds.

College of West Anglia students involved are studying for the Professional Cookery Diploma. Some 70 students are eligible for the award, said lecturer and course director Jonathan Boyall.
