A school chef from Worle has made it through to the national final of a catering competition.
Steve Fowell, who works at Mendip Green Primary School, won a regional final in the School Caterer of the Year competition.
He was given 90 minutes to prepare and cook a healthy and balanced meal and dessert which would appeal to 11-year-old schoolchildren.
He created a chickpea butter curry, which he served with rice, salad and a coconut cucumber raita, followed by a coconut custard topped with a strawberry.
Lynda Mitchell, regional vice chair for the Lead Association For Catering In Education, who also works for North Somerset Council, said: “Steve, a first-time entrant, wowed the judges with his flavoursome dishes, professional skills and cheerful demeanour.
“I was very pleased to be able to present the award to a North Somerset chef.”
Steve will compete in the national final in Stratford-upon-Avon on March 2.
