Waldegrave School Autumn Magazine 2022



The Rotary Young Chef Competition returned to Waldegrave after an absence of three years and our students certainly rose to the challenge.

The competitors were tasked with preparing and cooking a two-course meal for two people at a cost of £15, within two-hours. The students had to consider planning, costing, healthy choice of dishes, neatness of work and hygiene - not just how their food looked and tasted. Lead judge Thomas Rowlandson, head chef and joint owner of A Cena restaurant in East Twickenham was impressed by the high standard and emphasis on healthy cooking across all the competitors.

Joined by students from Twickenham Academy, this was the first stage, in a five- stage National competition and the overall winner will receive an all-expenses paid holiday in Tuscany and a training day in a Michelin starred restaurant. 14
