School cookery competition
FERNDOWN Upper School is amongst six Dorset schools which are taking part in a cooking competition.
The Harvest Fine Foods 'Yes Chef' competition is for students aged 13-18.
The other schools participating are Harewood College, The Thomas Hardye School, Lytchett Minster School, Ashdown Technology College and The Bishop of Winchester Academy.
Organised by the not-for-profit Enterprise and Skills Company, the launch took place last month at the Escoffier Restaurant at Lansdowne College. Over several rounds students are challenged to cook a menu covering a set course and one involving their own interpretation/creativity.
