On your marks, get set-COOK!

9th May 2013

De Warenne now has its very own celebratory chefs in Mr Green and Mr Ferguson who competed against one another in a ready, steady cook-style competition organised by our caterers, Chartwells.

The Red team - Mr Ferguson, Kalli Wesley (Y7) and Alisha Pearsall ( 11) -battled it out in a cook off against the Green team - Mr Green, Poppy Smith (Y7) and Megan Peart (Y11). This had all the drama, emotion and tension of the finals of Masterchef and the Great British Bake off.

Both teams cooked some amazingly appetising food but in the end the vegetarian curry with Bombay potatoes cooked by the Green team was voted the winner by the Year 7 audience, with the Red team's thai fish cakes coming a close second.

The event was greatly enjoyed by both Year 7 and the Year 11 catering group (as well as staff) who were not only thoroughly entertained by Mr 'Heston' Green's and Mr 'Ramsey' Ferguson's cooking skills but also learnt a lot about healthy eating and nutrition from the Chartwells staff.
