Year 11 Backwell students cooked a two-course meal for a young chef competition.

The Nailsea and Backwell Rotary Club organised the contest, with help from Mo Jenvey from Backwell School.

In total, 32 students entered the competition, and 11 made it to the final.

The Backwell School students cooked a lasagne for their man course, before serving up a pudding of their choice too.

The three Rotary judges said the food was an excellent standard, and very few points separated the entrants.

Eva Weston and Theo Sutton-Marceau and Lois Wilkinson were chosen as the winners in first, second and third place respectively.

Rotarian and judge Pete Hoare said: “This really was a great demonstration of the skills of the students.

“The food was delicious, the standard extremely high and the final decision on the winners was very tight.”

The three winners received a cash prize and certificate.
