  • Top prize for perfect pasta

    Published 09/12/21

    Congratulations to our talented young chefs, Noah Hopkins and Megan Brock, who took part in the local finals of Future Chefs at Crawley College today. Noah presented the judges with a chicken mousse ravioli with a mustard and cream sauce. But Megan's salmon tortellini in a dill and pea sauce proved the winning combination, earning her the top spot in the competition and a place in the regional finals early next year. Noah and Megan competed against ten others in designing, cooking and presenting a meal for two costing up to £5. The industry judges were looking for workmanship, skills, techniques, creativity and presentation as well as composition, taste and flavour in the timed test.
