Huge congratulations to Natasha , Year 11 who has once again been chosen by a panel of industry experts and TV chefs to represent Queens at the Student Chef 2022-2023 National Finals in association with the Royal Academy of Culinary Arts.
Having won her place as a finalist, Natasha has been invited to the National Final which will be held at the Bournemouth and Poole College this Friday.
Her winning dish is once more a traditionally Nigerian inspired by one of her family’s recipes. Natasha said, “I want to win because Food and Nutrition is something I’ve always been inspired by and wanted to excel in. I want to showcase my cooking and culinary skills to show my family that I have what it takes to be a good chef if I work hard and put my mind to it.
Natasha is not only being mentored by her Food Teacher Mr. Mann but also by fellow pupil Munopa in Year 13 who joined her last year in the finals of the competition.
Mr. Mann, Head of the Faculty of Art, Design, and Food said, “I am extremely proud of Tasha for her immense enthusiasm and professionalism and for once again making it to the finals of such a prestigious national culinary competition to represent Queen’s College.”
