Budding young chefs had their skills tested when they took part in a school cooking competition.
The King’s Ely Junior Masterchef final saw pupils from Years 6, 7 and 8 cooking up a range of dishes, including a trio of desserts, scotch egg and salad, sticky toffee pudding and a pineapple dessert.
The winner was 12-year-old Charlotte Wilkinson, who wowed the judges with her outstanding skill and presentation.
The competition formed part of a special nutrition and healthy eating week at the school, which ended with a cook-along session for Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution Day.
Students spent the afternoon cooking a nutritious meal from scratch, following Jamie Oliver’s live feed.

Head of Food Technology, Jayne Mackay, who organised the events, said: “Cooking is an essential life skill. We introduced the King’s Ely Junior Masterchef to showcase the considerable talent of some of our students and to encourage others to give it a go.
“We share Jamie Oliver’s mantra that every child in this country has a right to learn to cook, and next year we will be planning a massive food revolution day of our own.”
