Birchwood High School student Frankie Gilder has won the Rotary Club of Bishop's Stortford's annual young chef competition.

Frankie, who is in Year 7, was praised for his practical skills and organisation, will go forward to represent the town at the organisation's district contest next year.

Teams of budding chefs from secondary schools took part in the cook-off and each squad had to produce a three-course healthy meal for two for £15 in 90 minutes.

The winners of the junior competition were a team from Saint Nicholas School in Old Harlow - Eve Chin-Shaw, Kiki Crosby and Daisy Griffiths, with a classic and well-cooked menu. Alina Sahil, Emma Ballard, Isabelle Kellaway, from The Herts and Essex High School in Warwick Road won the intermediate competition with three interesting dishes, including a delicious asparagus and pea soup.

The judging panel, which included local chefs Luke Fishpool, from the Lemon Tree in Water Lane, and Simonas Jenca, from Host in Market Square, was very impressed with the standard of cooking, the teamwork and the way the students presented their meals.
