Some of the school’s best young cooks will get the chance to impress the head chef from one of Cheshire’s top restaurants as part of our school Masterchef contest.
For the competition’s opening round, pupils need to download an application form from the Food Technology department page and return it by Tuesday 27th March with details of a two course meal that can be prepared and cooked in an hour.
Entrants must then take part in a food tasting and identification round, with the top scorers progressing to a second stage in which they will cook their proposed meal for the Food Technology teachers.
May’s final will then see our best young chefs compete against each other as they try to impress the head chef from Alderley Edge’s Grill on the Edge restaurant, who will decide who will be crowned the Stockport Grammar School Masterchef.
As well as winning the Masterchef trophy and a £75 voucher for the restaurant, past winners often find that their dish is on the chef’s daily specials board on the day they claim their prize!
Luke Berry was our 2011 winner after his menu of stilton stuffed pear with a balsamic reduction followed by Patagonian beef with dauphinois potatoes thrilled the judges, while Harry Hunt’s Thai baked salmon and coconut rice followed by chocolate and raspberry brownies saw him take the lower school prize.
