For the fourth year running Proto Restaurant Group was asked to judge the Worthing Rotary Young Chef competition and we sent one of our Executive Chefs Stuart Slevin to do the honours.  This competition is open to all secondary schools in Great Britain and Ireland (ages 11 to 17) in search of the Rotary Young Chef for 2012.

The contestants had to prepare and present their three course meals for judging by an expert panel.  This year it was Rebekah Cheeseman who took the top chef title and she wins an amazing trip to Tuscany to sample the fantastic Italian cuisine there.  Her three course menu excited the judges with a rich blend of flavours and excellent use of ingredients.  As well as her amazing trip to Tuscany to look forward to, Rebekah also has the opportunity to spend a day at Food restaurant working alongside one of our Executive Chefs and creating her own dessert which we can’t wait to try!

Proto Restaurant Group is proud to be involved with the competition for another year as we believe it is highly important to encourage young people to be creative and this includes developing creativity in the kitchen.  Cooking amongst young people is a growing interest and something that we at Proto Restaurant Group highly encourage.
