Young chefs put their healthy cooking skills to the test as part of a national competition last month.

The Epsom Rotary Club heat of the national Young Chef 2013 took place at Rosebery School, in White Horse Drive, Epsom, which saw five competitors from Rosebery and Blenheim High schools prepare a three-course healthy meal for two people costing no more than £15, with a setting-up time of 30 minutes and cooking time of two hours. 

Each competitor produced a detailed working sheet and list of ingredients and costings for the judges Joyce Mooney, head chef and a proprietor of The Canopy restaurant in Epsom town centre, and Alberto Crisci, founder and a trustee of The Clink at Highdown prison, in Banstead.  

The winner, who will now go on to the rotary district final to be held on February 16, was Abi Luff of Rosebery School.

Second prize went to Pippa Turpin, of Rosebery, with Matt Wall of Blenheim High taking the third prize.
