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.
