Upper House Cooking contest

An exciting and well supported event has drawn to a close. There were 43 entrants in the three different categories,
with boys, parents and staff being allowed to choose to enter a starter, main course, or dessert. Under the critical
and knowledgeable eye of Mr Laurence Christie, who scored the dishes prepared on originality, difficulty and
presentation, the scores in all categories were really close.

Some entrants did not fully comply with the instructions and Mr Christie also took this into account in his final
assessment. Many thanks to all who made the effort to participate, there were certainly some remarkable dishes
prepared.

The winners in the various categories were as follows:
