Masterchef 2014 – Round 1

Congratulations to all of our competitors in the first round of Rhyddings Masterchef 2014. We had some excellent dishes – Miss Greenhalgh and I are constantly surprised by the creativity and skill displayed by students! Unfortunately, not everybody could make it through to the second round. Well done to the following students who have successfully made it through:

Tutu Mukelabai, Becky Gibson, Daisy Clemson, Luke Tomlinson, Jack Barnes, Ryan Richardson, Morgan Herne, Max Cryne, Stephen Preece, Grace Haworth, Thomas Gales-Ellis and Leoni Brown.

Next week’s theme is dessert – interpret that however you like!

Good luck,

Miss Bedwell and Miss Greenhalgh.
