Young chef Mona Amet finished third in the north-west final of Red Tractor’s Make it With Mince competition after cooking some delicious lamb koftas for TV chef James Martin.
To enter, fourth year pupil Mona had to devise an original, healthy beef or lamb recipe for under £10 – for which she was picked from hundreds of young cooks to make the dish in the final.
Judged by James on taste, originality, nutrition and presentation, Mona’s Moroccan koftas – served with a spicy tomato sauce – won her a place among the north-west’s very best!
