This week Miss Greenhalgh and I were joined by Raj from Raj Indian Cuisine and Lounge in Blackburn, as well as two of his chefs. Whilst his chefs got cooking with their demonstration dishes, our chefs got cooking their Quarter Final dishes for Indian week.

We are very thankful for Raj’s continuing support of the Rhyddings Masterchef competition. He has been involved since the inaugural competition, and it’s always useful for us to have another judge to help us decide when it gets as tough as it was tonight!

Unfortunately we could only put four students through to next week’s semi final. Congratulations to Grace Haworth, Morgan Herne, Jack Barnes and Ryan Richardson! Commiserations to Tutu Mukelabai, Thomas Gales-Ellis, Becky Gibson and Luke Tomlinson – we wanted to put all of you through, but tough decisions had to be made.

Next week the semi final will take place on Wednesday evening. Please let your parents know so that they can come and support you! We’ll be emailing the details of the semi final to you shortly, so keep an eye on your school email.

Well done to all students who have participated so far in the competition. We can’t wait to see what happens next week!

Miss Bedwell and Miss Greenhalgh.
