Two students at West Grantham Academy St Hugh’s have tasted success in a cooking contest judged by celebrity chef James Martin.
Adam Childs, 16, and Chloe Smith, 12, were chosen to take part in the regional heat of the Red Tractor Make it with Mince Challenge 2013 in Cambridge and James Martin was there to see them prepare their dishes. Adam made Moroccan Lamb Rolls and his dish won him second place. Chloe gained a Highly Commended award for her Sunday Roast with a contemporary twist. Adam, who would like to become a chef, said he was “over the moon” with second place and Chloe said she was very proud with her award. St Hugh’s Principal Louise Bennett said: “I am always proud to see students who have had the confidence to find their element.” Food technology teacher Shelly Easom said: “They put in a lot of hard work before the competition stage. I am incredibly proud.” Adam and Chloe won certificates, books signed by Martin and signed chef’s jackets.
