EIGHT young chefs from all over East Anglia cooked to impress at West Suffolk College’s Zest restaurant on Saturday.
They were district finalists in the Rotary Club’s national Young Chef Competition who were trying to win a place in the regional final.
Organiser Bob Hopcraft said individual clubs chose them in cook-offs with their local schools. “These kids did well to get this far,” he said.
The winner was Deniss Lusnikovs, from the College of West Anglia, with runner-up Elise Mabbutt, from Aylesham High School.
Bob thanked West Suffolk College for its support.
