Madi in Future Chef Final!

On Wednesday 2nd December, Madi Cole, Year 9, and Ashley Gilder, Year 10, took part in the latest round of Future Chef 2015 at Rick Stein’s Seafood School in Padstow. Madi came away with a fantastic 2nd, gaining a well-deserved place in the South West Regional Final at River Cottage.

Miss Andrews, Catering Teacher, said: “Last night I had the pleasure of taking two of our wonderful students to Padstow. Both performed extremely well, demonstrating confidence and maturity at every stage. They produced spectacular dishes showing a range of professional high level skills. They were both outstanding, making themselves and us all at Penrice extremely proud!”

Madi was one of two winning participants out of 10 students from schools across the county and will now continue to the South West Regional Final at River Cottage in February 2016; one step away from the National finals in London.
