03 Apr 2019
A budding chef from Ashby School has been named runner-up in the county final of the Rotary Young Chef of the Year competition.
Ella Cole, in Year 10, did not take the overall title but won 'Dish of the Day' for her mushroom starter.
Ruth Andre Evans, who represents the Rotary Clubs of Ashby-de-la-Zouch, said: "Ella has put in tremendous hard work and showed enormous determination to get this far. Winning 'Dish of the Day' was a great achievement, considering her dish was judged to taste the best out of the 21 dishes on display - well done, Ella.
"The object of the Rotary Youth Competitions is to promote the talents of our local young people, to give them confidence in their own abilities and to leave them with fond memories of their experience which will hopefully lead them to succes in the future."
Ella also prepared salmon en croute and profiteroles.
