Superb Libby, 13, has finished runner up in a prestigious chef final – despite being the youngest competitor.
The brilliant Libby of Priory Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare, Somerset won runner up in the South West Springboard FutureChef competition.
She was the youngest competitor at the finals.
The highly competitive contest inspires students to learn about food, cooking, budgeting and presentation.
It also prepares them for future careers in the industry.
She is following in the footsteps of one of the world’s best cooks, Mary Berry. The 86 year old inspiration trained at The Cordon Bleu in Paris and Bath School of Home Economics before becoming a best-selling author and TV food presenter.
Libby won a round hosted at PCSA before going through to the regional finals that were held at Taunton College in their professional kitchens.
Principal Angelos Markoutsas said: “What an incredibly impressive achievement by Libby. This is a great platform for a top career in the chef and hospitality industry.”
