Watch out Masterchef!

It seems that Masterchef is gripping the nation and that cooking has been the latest craze for sometime now…which is a good thing!

We were honoured to be asked to judge the Masterchef Final 2015 for children aged 11 and 12 at Orchards Community Middle School in Durrington on 7 July.  We sent our Executive Chef Stuart Slevin to judge the competition on behalf of The Fish Factory.

Orchards Community Middle School has held a Masterchef competition in their school for the last few years now and has proved to be a great success and thoroughly enjoyed by the children.    As well as sending Stuart to judge the final, we also offered the winner the opportunity to experience life in a real kitchen and cook in one of our restaurants.

After judging the competition Stuart said: “I thoroughly enjoyed visiting Orchards Community Middle School to judge their Masterchef Final 2015.  All the children exceeded in the dishes they made and I was very impressed by their cooking skills bearing in mind they are only 11 and 12 years old”.

At Proto Restaurant Group we think it is great that more and more pupils are cooking and loving it!
