Sophie Takes First Place At The Futurechef Warwickshire Final
Many congratulations to Sophie Henry who won the Warwickshire final of the Springboard Futurechef competition.
Year 10 pupils, Sophie Henry and Finlay Ross, cooked up a storm in the Warwickshire final on Thursday 30 November at Caludon Castle School in Coventry.
Before the event, Sophie and Finlay had prepared thoroughly, putting a lot of time into menu planning and practising their dishes, the brief for which was that the meal should reflect something about themselves. On the day, the talented pair produced beautifully presented plates of food of the highest standard. Sophie prepared Chicken Fricassee with Pommes Français while Finlay a Chicken Kyiv with fries and green beans.
After much deliberation by the judges, Sophie was awarded first place. She was presented with a certificate and has qualified for the next round, the Futurechef Regional Final, which will take place in the new year at Birmingham University.
Teacher of Food Technology, Jacqui Scott, said, “I am extremely proud of both of Princethorpe’s young chefs, they did brilliantly and received really positive feedback from the judges. Many congratulations to Sophie, whose dish was outstanding. I am delighted she has qualified for the Regional Final.”
A huge well done to Sophie, she clearly has the makings of a master chef.
