Spalding Academy students claim top spots in Rotary Young Chef Competition
Students from Spalding Academy claimed first and second place in the Rotary Young Chef Competition.
Winner Tabby Knightley will now represent Spalding at the district final in Peterborough in February.
Second place went to Brendon Nelson with Spalding High School student Maddie Haunch coming third.
There was a separate section for the Bourne Academy students taking part and that was won by Jodie Wisker, who also goes forward to the district final in Peterborough.
The competition was held at Spalding Academy and the young chefs were challenged to cook a main course and dessert served on a table for two with a budget of just £14.
The event was organised by The Rotary Club of Spalding and Welland. Club president Melanie Biggadike presented the prizes.
Rotarian Rodney Britten said: "This is a popular competition which encourages young people to cook and eat healthy food - and many go on to study food science and catering at university.
"Rotarians wish to publicly thank South Lincs Food Service for their generous sponsorship covering the costs including the prizes for a further three years."
Head judge Robert Presland, from Peterborough Regional College, congratulated all of the entrants on their excellent meals.
