School restaurant inspires academy’s ‘Young Chef of the Year’ Winner

Cucina’s restaurant approach to school food helps inspire year 11 student to ‘Young Chef of the Year’ victory.

Hearty congratulations to Rebecca Potter, Year 11 student at Harefield Academy in Middlesex, who won her district final in Rotary’s ‘Young Chef of the Year’ competition.

Finalists were required to prepare two courses for £15 or under.

Rebecca served the judges Fillet of Cod wrapped in Parma Ham with Buttered Nicola Potatoes, Asparagus and Blood Orange Beurre Blanc. Her dessert was Lemon Tart with Fresh Berries.

Harefield Academy head chef Jez Nutsford said the school’s Key Stage 4 Jamie Oliver-inspired curriculum goes hand-in-hand with the Cucina’s ‘stealthy eating’ restaurant-standard school dining which is provided by education catering specialist Cucina.

He added: “Cucina’s restaurant approach to school food is inspiring kids to love healthy food because it also tastes yummy for them.

“We work closely with the Food Tech team here and it’s been great to mentor and support Rebecca in this great win.”
