The Junior Master Chef 2012 competition was held at Tameside College this year and was organised in collaboration with Tameside Metropolitan Borough Council.
The competition was open to all local Secondary School pupils and overall, nine separate schools from around the borough entered.
The competition was based at the Tameside College on-site student restaurant, and was co-ordinated by the colleges Apprenticeship students who were present throughout the day providing help and guidance to all the competitors.
The Worshipful Civic Mayor of Tameside, Councillor Susan Quinn and Tameside College Principal, Peter Ryder, attended the event and presented the Winner and Runner up Awards.
Chloe Jones from Copley High School produced an excellent dish and took the runner up place but it was Jessica Brook from Mossley Hollins High School who impressed the judges the most and received the Winner’s Trophy.
It was Jessica’s main dish that helped her stand out from the crowd. Jessica made fresh Pasta, chicken breast with a white cream sauce and Mediterranean Vegetables wrapped in Parma Ham.
Everyone involved on the day agreed the competition had been a great success and it highlights just how motivated and talented young people in Tameside can be when given the opportunity.
