8239 students took part across the UK and Emily Eves made it to the last 12. The final twelve battled it out in a very hot kitchen and produced a incredibly high standard of food. Judged by some of the best chefs in London Emily did amazingly well and impressed with her attention to detail and presentation. Unfortunately she did not win the competition but was a credit to herself and the school. Many thanks to Alan Paton (Stoke by Nayland Hotel) for mentoring Emily and to her family for their support especially having to eat the same meal all the time!
