SCHOOL chefs battled it out to be crowned the best in North Somerset.

Edwards and Ward, the company which provides many schools meals in the district, has held a competition to find its best chef.

Five talented finalists took to the stoves at Grove Junior School in Nailsea in their final challenge in which they were given a bag of mystery ingredients and just 90 minutes to produce a dish.

They were Jane Edney from St Peter’s Primary School in Portishead, Nina Burge from Yeo Moor Primary School in Clevedon, Kirstie Cox from St Martin’s Junior School in Worle and Jackie Hardman from Uphill Primary School,

Tina Wood from Castle Batch Primary School in Worle was crowned the eventual winner.
