The students had two hours to cook a three-course meal, within a budget of �15, at the food technology department at the College of West Anglia.
Judges Colin Sussams, from Somerville School of Cookery in Terrington St John, Jo Hart, who studied at Westminster Catering College, and Roger Almond and Jon Martin, both Wisbech Rotary Club members, praised the “high standards” of all the entries.
Aspiring chef Josh took one step closer to Tuscany by triumphing in the heats. The young star will compete in the district final for a chance to progress to the regional and national finals.
