SEVENTEEN year-old Eleanor Deptford has whipped up a tasty triumph in a contest to uncover teenaged talent in the kitchen.

The Wisbech Grammar School student, who lives in Coldham, rose to the challenge when she steamed through the club round of the Rotary Young Chef competition to seal a place in the next stage of the competition in King's Lynn in January.

A total of 60 pupils at the school had earlier competed in a series of cook-off heats - and the first challenge for the youngsters involved serving up an omelette bearing their own individual stamp.

At the club round stage the heat was on for the remaining culinary competitors as they were given just one and a half hours to tickle the taste buds of a panel of judges from the Rotary Club with a mouth-watering main course and a dessert.
