A BUDDING young chef has proved he has the recipe for success after winning a Danetre Rotary Club cooking competition.
Twelve-year-old George Pawlett, who attends the Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village, prepared a chicken curry and an apple crumble.
Following a brief to create a two-course healthy meal for two people, he achieved high marks for quality, taste and presentation.
The prizes were presented by Peter Montgomery, president of Danetre Rotary Club.
He said: “It was impressive to see the standard of entries by youngsters of this age.
“And it was good to see them all getting enjoyment from their cooking.”
Jordan Simpson-Brown, 12, from the Parker E-ACT Academy, cooked a German-themed meal to qualify for second place while fellow pupil James Thomson, 13, produced a chocolate dessert as part of his third-place winning entry.
The event was held on Tuesday last week at the school.
George now progresses to the next round of the national Rotary Young Chef competition.
Taking place in Leicester in January, he will be asked to cook a three-course meal to impress the judges.
