Cornwall Junior Chef 2017

Many congratulations to Anna West from Penair School, Truro, who won the Cornwall Junior Chef competition on Tuesday 27th June at Cornwall College Cambourne.

Anna competed in the semi-final last year too and armed with the feedback and advice from the judges, came back and won this year and will now go on to represent Cornwall at the final in October.

Competition was strong from the other five semi-finalists who presented a range of intriguing dishes, impressing our judges with their advanced skills.  Take a look at their dishes below.  Well done to all competitors for all their hard work!
