Students in Young Chef of Year final

Pictured here are Chesterfield College students Jordan Garratt (17), Oliver Salt (18) and Natasha Hart (18) with staff Paul Maude and Ian Matthews.

The three, who all studied NVQ Level 3 Professional Cookery at the college, have been nominated as finalists for Young Chef of the Year at the Chesterfield Food and Drink Awards, which is hosted at the college’s Heart Space Building.

Jordan, Oliver and Natasha beat off 25 other contenders in a cook-off, which was judged by a panel of local business owners who appraised them on their skill and precision in cooking an unknown menu.
