Weston College's catering students were set a challenging task designed to teach them how easy it is to enjoy delicious dishes on a budget.

It required them to create menu items for just £1.50 using local ingredients.

The budding chefs were put into teams and the team which sold the most of their creative and appetising dishes to college staff not only enjoyed bragging rights but also won a day at a Michelin-starred restaurant.

Steven Shore, who is a chef at Arthur David in Bristol, provided some expert advice to the students before they took on the challenge.

The winning dishes were cooked by Alice Ruff, Joe Gallagher and Luke Johnson-Brown. Their menu included a spicy winter vegetable tagine, with a plum crumble with custard for dessert.

Richard Tudor, chef lecturer at Weston College, said: “The idea behind the market challenge was to teach our students how to cook on a budget and turn a profit.”
