Aunt Bessie Challenge

Excellent achievement by these pupils who made it through to the Aunt Bessie Challenge. They achieved this by developing creative potato based dishes that included vegetables, could be made in an hour and filled a gap in the market. They produced a wide range of excellent dishes that looked appetising, interesting and innovative. Some examples as follows, Hasselback potatoes, Sweet potato topped cottage pie, Potato cakes with chorizo and vegetables. Spiced potato cakes, encased in Puff pastry.

Teachers judged the dishes and the winners were as follows.

  • 1st prize: Bobby and Joe (Sweet potato cottage pie)
  • 2nd prize: Sophie (Spicey potato croquettes)
  • 3rd prize: Emily, Phoebe and Grace (Spiced potato cakes, encased in Puff pastry.)

Everyone commented that all of the dishes looked amazing and that the standard was incredibly high. Well done to all pupils who took part.
