Devizes Area Final of Rotary Young Chef 2016-17

Having experienced two fantastic heats last month, everyone was very much looking forward to the final of the Devizes Area Young Chef 2016-17 Competition which was held last Monday (7th November) at The Farm Cookery School near Bromham. The contestants that had made it through from the heats were Beth Bogert, Bella Paxton, Elizabeth Woodward and Jocasta Wellard.

Beth Bogert

with Elizabeth Woodward coming a very close second – in fact there was only one point in it! So, many congratulations to Beth, and good luck to her in the District Finals which will be held between January and mid-February.

Finally, thanks once again to everyone involved for making the competition a great success, including the contestants, their supporters, Gretchen (owner of the cookery school), the judges and members of the Rotary Club of Devizes who organised the competition.

Photos from the event are shown below.
