Potential Jamie Olivers and Nigellas of the future dazzled judges with their cooking skills on Saturday.

The Rotary Young Chef District Final brought together pupils from eight schools to battle it out in the kitchen, at Redbridge College in Barley Lane, on Saturday.

With just £10 for ingredients and two hours to whip up main meal and dessert for two people, the chefs, between 11 and 18 years old, were under pressure.

Noah O’Leary, from Wanstead High School was judged the overall winner.

Alongside the amateur masterchef, students proved they also had the gift of the gab as they went head to head in a public speaking competition.

Winners were a team from d Chigwell School, High Road, Chigwell, and pupil Christopher Collins was also honoured as best speaker.

The discerning panel of judges were District Governor Nominee Michael Wren of Rotary Club of Redbridge & students from Redbridge College.

The teenagers are now crossing their fingers ahead of the regional final on May 11 in Ipswich.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
